Event Information

Gillian has been inspired to prepare and research this talk to honour the brave men and women who served their country in WWII. Capturing your interest from the start and move you both to laughter and tears. Covers the operational training and preparation of agents as well as amazing missions, some successful and others betrayed.

Gillian was previously at the National Trust as the Volunteer Co-ordinator at Knole, organising the guides and stewards (300 then). She is now the Chairman of a small committee of volunteers organising lectures and outings for the volunteers, and a Highlight Guide at Knole. She started giving talks, having organised and heard so many.

Gillian much enjoys meeting different groups and gets a big buzz from public speaking with the added pleasure of raising substantial sums of money for her pet charities.
