The Baedeker Raid on York lecture on 18th October 2017

Friends of Malton Museum lecture on Wednesday 18th October 2017 at 7.30 pm in the Library, East Wing, Malton School, Middlecave Road, Malton. Admission is free to Friends, others are welcome at a charge of £3.

The Friends say:-

The presentation by Malcolm Brook initially looks at the background to the raid which occurred in the early hours of the 29th April 1942. It examines the often criticised RAF response which will allow the audience to decide for itself whether the criticism was justified.

How can one word alter the understanding of what happened to the troop train that was trapped in York station?

When the graves of the casualties were being located, the moving details of one particular death came to light.

Wartime photographs of the bomb damage in York have been matched to their present day location.
