‘Nobody’s Heroes – 8th East Lancs in the Great War’  - Stephen Barker
15 Oct



Due to circumstances beyond our control the speaker this month has changed to  Stephen Barker

‘Nobody’s Heroes – 8th East Lancs in the Great War’ 

Although the talk is about a Lancashire battalion, the presentation gives an impression of life in and out of the trenches for any Service Battalion of the First World War, irrespective of their origins. Fully illustrated, it tells of the war from the soldier's perspective, making use of documentary evidence including letters, sound archives, artefacts and poetry. The talk includes unusual perspectives of the war, highlights the experience of battle and makes links to the wider war.
