In 1940, the Germans succeeded in destroying the Spitfire factories in Southampton, believing they had ended the threat from their nemesis. But unknown to them, the British decided to build Spitfires in secret in rural towns in the south of England, including Salisbury. Witnesses account this never before told story of amazing achievement, recounting times of terrible sadness as well as joy.

The afternoon includes an introduction from the film’s Director, Ethem Cetintas; a screening of the documentary; tea and biscuits - all followed by a discussion led by Norman Parker, an engineer in the final assembly plant and today a highly respected historian on the subject.
