EDINBURGH – Barbara Bond – MI9’s Escape & Evasion Maps of WWII

21st March @ 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm

Barbara Bond describes the historical background and purpose of MI9’s wartime escape and evasion mapping programme – the maps they produced, the covert help they were given by a famous Scottish map publisher, how maps were smuggled into the prisoner of war camps and how they were instrumental in some remarkable escapes, particularly that of Airey Neave from Colditz.

Tickets are available on the night, at the door and online via Eventbrite from one month before until midday the day before a talk. If booking a Tiso or RSGS member ticket please be sure to bring your card(s) along.  Thank you.

RSGS Inspiring People talks are open to all. We are pleased to say that this year’s talks programme is being run in partnership with Tiso, the outdoor retail specialist. Entry is £10 for adults, £8 for Tiso Outdoor Experience cardholders, and free for RSGS members, students and U18s
