The remarkable Nancy Wake

Betty West’s talk will be on the extraordinary life of Nancy Wake. It will include an account of her wartime experiences in the Resistance in France and as an SOE, and promises to be an astonishing and inspiring story.

On Friday March 20th the Association will host a lunchtime meeting at Woodcroft, London Road, Kettering, when Mrs Betty West will be the guest speaker.

Betty grew up in Harrington where her family farmed and she was the last pupil to be admitted to the school in the village before its eventual closure. She still lives in Harrington and is very active at the ‘Carpetbaggers’ museum, located at the local airfield from which Nancy Wake made her flight into occupied France.

Coincidentally, Betty’s maiden name was Burt and her younger brother John, (also known as Roger), is a member of the Old Cyts and now lives in Perth, Australia.

The meeting, which is open to members, partners, friends and all past pupils, has an 11.30 am for 12 o’clock start, and the speaker’s address will be followed by a buffet lunch. The cost will be £10 inclusive of wine.
