'Meeting the Enemy' with Richard van Emden
09 May

The Suffolk WFA hold monthly meetings, which are open to members and non-members of the association. The meetings include a talk on a Great War related subject, given by branch members or well established historians and authors. 

Richard van Emden joins the Suffolk branch to discuss 'Meeting the Enemy' based on his best-selling book. This talk tells the
stories of contact between the opposing sides in the Great War that eminent historian Richard van Emden has unearthed – incidents that show brutality, great humanity, and above all the bizarre nature of a conflict between two nations with long-standing ties of kinship and friendship. Meeting the Enemy reveals for the first time how contact was maintained on many levels throughout the War, and its stories, sometimes funny, often moving, give us a new perspective on the lives of ordinary men and women caught up in extraordinary events.

Most talks are usually an hour in duration, with an interval of half an hour, followed by a Q&A session.

We ask for a donation entry fee of £4.00 per person, which includes a buffet during the interval. Drinks can be purchased at the club's bar.
