Jan Leeming – Mouchotte Diaries – Book launch, book signing and talks

We are pleased to let you know about the Mouchotte Diaries book launch and talk on Sunday 27th November at Capel le Ferne (near Folkestone). Our Patron, Ms Jane Leeming will give two talks on the occasion (at 11m and 3pm). She has a passion and a deep knowledge of the history of Rene Mouchotte, having previously led the BBC one programme about his life and exploits.

The new book, which has 60 illustrations, many given by the Mouchotte family and never printed before, retraces the story of Rene Mouchotte, commanding officer of the 341 Squadron RAF (Groupe de Chasse n° 3/2 « Alsace »). 

Lord Ricketts (former British Ambassador to France when medals presented to the Mouchotte family) has written the foreword to the book and is expected to attend the event. Some family members will also be present.

We invite you to participate to the event and more information is available here
