SOE Exhibition 2018

Come and visit our 6 week summer exhibition on Tangmere and the Special Operations Executive (SOE) from Saturday 21 July until Sunday 2 September, excluding Sunday 26 August (the Museum’s Family Day).

The exhibition will be held in the Museum’s Neville Duke Hall and will open daily from 1100 until 1600 hours. Entry to the exhibition is included in the normal Museum.

We plan to include the following in the exhibition:-

  • The SOE careers of women agents who flew from RAF Tangmere
  • Information on lesser known but important RAF Special Duties (SD) Pick-Up pilots who flew Westland Lysanders from Tangmere
  • A film on the recruitment and training of SOE agents (subject to IWM permission)
  • The Comet Belgian and French Resistance escape line
  • A series of talks on Tangmere and the SOE during the exhibition
  • The official opening of a new exhibition on Wing Commander Leonard Ratcliff, a famous SD pilot
  • Code writing and other activities for children

Also, in association with the Chichester Cinema at New Park, the Museum is planning to run at the cinema a joint event featuring a film and talk on the SOE.
