War veterans will be available for a chat next week at IWM Duxford.

Meet the Veterans is a fascinating opportunity to meet and chat with people who’ve experienced a wide range of conflicts, from the Second World War and the Cold War to global contemporary conflicts, including Northern Ireland, the Falklands War, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Veterans in attendance cover a wide range of ages, backgrounds and experiences.

They range from members of the Royal Air Force, Army and Royal Navy to National Service conscripts and civilians who experienced the Second World War Home Front as children, playing on the wartime bomb sites and enduring air raids, rationing and evacuation.

The event runs in the Airspace hangar from 11am until 1pm this Sunday and next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 12-14.
