The Great Escape - Nottingham - September 1918 - by John Beech
04 Sep

John Beech. John needs no introduction to Chesterfield members as he rarely misses a meeting.  In September 1918 a group of German officers escaped from where they were being held (now on the site of the University of Nottingham). Using his meticulous researches, John will tell this story.
