Jill Palmer hosted a magnificent reception and talk at Dorney Court near Windsor at the end of March. Drinks and delicious canapés were served in the Great Hall followed by a talk on the SOE, from Gilly Halcrow in the Coach House Barn. As you can see the Coldstream Guards turned out in their splendour to support the event which raised a fantastic £5,663.00
The Special Operations Executive was a British WWII organisation formed to conduct espionage, sabotage and reconnaissance in occupied Europe. Gilly Halcrow is an accomplished speaker and the daughter of an SOE veteran. Her talk is a tribute to all the brave men and women who participated in these critical yet perilous operations and she generously donates her fees to the DDMT.
