'Harry Patch - The Last Fighting Tommy' with Richard van Emden
17 Dec

The speaker for this years Festive Fish Fry meeting (Tickets in advance @ £7.50) is the renowned author and TV historian Richard van Emden, a name that will be familiar to many of you, so I’m sure tickets will sell quickly when they go on sale at the October meeting.

It’s hard to believe but 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Harry Patch, the last Army veteran of WW1, who many members of this branch were honoured to meet in 2008 on a branch trip to Ypres, so it seemed appropriate to mark the occasion with a talk about his extraordinary life.
