Where the Money Went - By Roy Larkin

Where the Money Went

 A fully illustrated presentation designed to ignite the imagination as to why the Great War cost us dearly. Costs that are obvious when mentioned but otherwise never considered, how an innocent looking fifty pounds can very quickly become several, if not many, thousands. The presentation encourages audience participation as the talk progresses

Roy's Bio

Interest in the Great War began with its influence on the British road haulage industry in the 1920s. Volunteering at the Royal Logistic Corps Museum provided opportunity for more in-depth exploration of road transport on the Western Front. Regular delving into The National Archives has diversified the focus to anything in the back area and the home front, the quirkier the better. Self-published Destination Western Front and then the Second edition after a chance find at the National Archives provided considerably more information. More WW1 quirkiness, military abbreviations and books can be found on Roy's  website www.historicroadways.co.uk
