To celebrate her first publication, Victoria Panton Bacon would like to invite you to Jarrolds Department Store in Norwich for the launch of Six Weeks of Blenheim Summer, the memoir of her grandfather, Alastair Panton, that she stumbled upon in a garage.

Six Weeks of Blenheim Summer is a vivid and lyrical memoir of life as an RAF reconnaissance pilot in France during the hellish summer of 1940. It brings to life the fear, loneliness and pain that Alastair Panton and his comrades came to live with during those long weeks, as well as the bravery, camaraderie and humanity that made those unpredictable days more bearable.

Panton’s extraordinary book, written in the aftermath of the war but discovered posthumously, is edited and introduced by his granddaughter Victoria Panton Bacon. A candid and gripping read, this is very much the story of a pilot and his plane

The launch and signing event will take place in the book department of Jarrold Store on London Street.

Tickets are £5 and include refreshments on arrival, and a ticket is redeemable for £5 off a copy of Six Weeks of Blenheim Summer purchased that evening. Book tickets by calling 01603 660661, or click here to buy online.
