Winston Churchill’s Toyshop
A talk and lunch with Gordon Rogers at Hartwell House in Aylesbury
When becoming PM, Churchill knew of the massive War Office red tape. To bypass this he appointed himself Minister of Defence and created just one Department: MD1, located at Whitchurch just north of Aylesbury. To run it he appointed Millis Jefferis who was known to him since 1939 as a brilliant inventor. The department was to be under Churchill’s direct control via Lord Cherwell and over 50 weapons were invented which went into service.
Join Gordon Rogers for a presentation and talk on a little known piece of military history whilst enjoying a superb two course lunch. This informative event will commence at 12 noon and the cost is £35.00 per person to include a glass of Prosecco, talk and presentation, two course lunch with glass of wine and coffee.
