Professor Richard Holmes

Professor Richard Holmes CBE, the military historian renowned for his books on military topics and television programmes on ‘war walks’ and ‘battlefields’, was among over 40 senior military officers to visit the Museum on the afternoon of 25th March. This was organised as part of the UK Defence Academy’s Higher Command and Staff Course for senior officers of all three services. Having already visited the Map Room at Southwick House where General Eisenhower made his historic decision to launch D-Day and with an evening meal on HMS Victory to come, it was felt that the addition of Tangmere Military Aviation Museum during the afternoon offered a more balanced day’s programme for what is essentially a tri-Service course. It was Professors Holmes’ first visit to the Museum; he told us that he enjoyed seeing so many important and relevant artefacts on display and had every intention of returning for a more leisurely appreciation of our various exhibits.
