Trust Secretary Patrick Tootal, who launched our current series of webinars with his recollections of life as an Air Attaché in Madrid and a Defence Attaché in Buenos Aires, has agreed to deliver a second presentation to our growing audience of online enthusiasts.
Following Patrick’s tales of life as a diplomat, which he delivered in November, the Trust has enjoyed two well-supported webinars from author Dilip Sarkar and a talk from historian Paul Beaver on The Forgotten Few of the Fleet Air Arm yesterday (Wednesday 10 March) and is looking forward to another by author Christopher Joll on 24 March.
Now Hercules pilot Patrick, who retired from the Royal Air Force as a Group Captain, has agreed to bookend the series with a webinar entitled Travelling Through My Logbook. Planned for Wednesday 14 April, it promises to be a fascinating illustrated journey from his first instructional flight on 27 July 1958 through life at RAF College Cranwell, his appearance in a Ladybird book and a distinguished career in an impressive variety of posts and operational theatres.
As with all the Trust’s webinars, it starts at 3pm. Joining details will be posted in due course.
Group Captain Patrick Tootal, Hon Sec of the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust.
