More stories are coming in every day. In the last few days these include Polish Spitfires, The bombing of Hitler’s Alpine Lair at Berchtesgaden, the horrors of the western front in WW1, Adolf Galland meets RAF Pathfinders, Is Hitler still after me ? – an escape from Nazi Germany into the London Blitz, RAF service during the Malayan insurgency and Buccaneer – a navigator’s view from HMS Ark Royal to the Gulf war.

"Helping us all through the Great Isolation"

Operation Bookworm

With all BMMHS talks cancelled for the summer and hoping to resume in September, we have decided to put the ample time we all have our hands at present  to produce a book with the main content being from articles, memories, anecdotes of military experiences (serving or civilian) of our members or their family members and friends.    

We will also look to include articles and book excerpts from various authors and historians. The working title at the moment is ‘Glimpses of War’.  All the net profits will be donated to the Blind Veterans UK charity.  

Please keep them coming…Send them into us at info@bmmhs.org
