Festival talks by Fiona Carnarvon

104. 1944 AT HIGHCLERE CASTLE – D-Day Sunday Talk

Generously supported by

In 1944 Highclere Castle was a home for children evacuees; General Patton arrived for lunch in June; whilst two P-38 planes crashed just above the Castle whilst practising for D-Day. The Land Girls and retired estate workers were on the farm and in the kitchen gardens – Dig for Victory was part of the survival plan. Fiona Carnarvon will paint a fascinating portrait of an estate at war.
