‘Oh! What a lovely War?’ talk

I changed the format slightly of my new talk about the First World War, “Oh! What a lovely War?”.

I have decided to illustrate it featuring Lancashire soldiers who fought in the major battles.

The talk will also contain details of the personalties involved such as Field Marshal Haig, as well as some of the technology / equipment used and the results of over four and a half years of “The War to end all wars”.

The talk will debut at the Horwich Heritage meeting on Tuesday, 17th May at The Resource Centre, Beaumont Road (off Longworth Road), Horwich, near Bolton BL6 7BG starting at 7.30 p.m.; there is an admission charge.
