They, alongside other members from the army, joined us in the Cafe Bar Concerto Restaurant for lunch and spent the afternoon celebrating their annual get together in our comfortable art deco surroundings.
The veterans and pilots kindly let us take a photograph of them and took the time to talk to us about the regiment and its history. Formed in World War II, ‘The Glider Pilot Regiment’ was an elite division of the British Army and only those who achieved the highest standards were selected. We spoke of flying feats and crash landings, and heard of their heroic stories which were truly extraordinary.
We would like to thank the Glider and RAF pilots for choosing to visit us today. It was an honour to host and be a part of your very special occasion, thank you!
