December Branch Meeting 19th December (Note Change of Date) - Dr John Greenacre -  "I Consider an Example Should Be Made":
19 Dec

Note Date Change for Christmas - 19th December 2019 

Private Benjamin Hart was the only soldier from the Suffolk Regiment executed during the First World War. A close examination of his trial using the original documents helps to dispel some of the myths and assist our understanding of this emotive subject. 

John Greenacre spent twenty-four years in the British Army as a helicopter pilot and staff officer before retiring in 2011. He was awarded his PhD in history by the University of Leeds in 2009.

John now lectures in history at the University of Suffolk in Ipswich and is a busy battlefield tour guide, working across Europe with schools, civilian and military groups.
