Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - 5 OFTHE BEST -

AS you may re­mem­ber, it was Roald Dahl’s 100th birth­day this Septem­ber, but did you know he was a war hero?

Dahl flew for the RAF in Africa and the Mid­dle East dur­ing World War II. He even nar­rowly es­caped death when his plane crash landed in the dessert of what is now Libya.

For­mer RAF Pi­lot and lo­cal Dahl his­to­rian Gra­ham Lau­rie speaks to chil­dren and adults at the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Mis­senden for a spe­cial Remembrance Day work­shop. Gra­ham will talk about the in­cred­i­ble jour­ney Dahl made in the Sec­ond World War, end­ing up as a spy along­side James Bond au­thor Ian Flem­ing, and how it shaped his sto­ries.
