A Trip to Switzerland – a little-known aspect of WW1

Tony’s talk is on the heart-warming story of the visits by wives and sweethearts to POW’s in Switzerland in 1916.  Many will know about the transfer of seriously wounded POW’s from both sides to Switzerland for convalescence but few will know the rest of the story. Tony also talks about his research for this talk and offers advice for any trying to research soldiers from the Great War.
