The Secret Spitfires tells the incredible true story of how the 'planes that halted Hitler' were built by everyday heroes - in the workshops, garages, garden sheds of Salisbury and across Wiltshire.
Salisbury resident and nonagenarian Norman Parker will be speaking about his experiences as a Spitfire engineer at a special showing of The Secret Spitfires next month.
Norman was one of the engineers leading that extraordinary wartime project and his role in the film, and first-hand recollections now, are
fascinating for all ages.
Live screening on 7th November at Brown Street in aid of Alzheimer’s Support, with all proceeds to the charity’s new Salisbury Dementia Centre.
The acclaimed 2016 documentary tells the story of how the planes were assembled in hidden workshops by teams of ordinary people, many of them young women drafted in after the original factory was bombed.
Introduced by its star, wartime spitfire engineer Norman Parker.
