'Robert Keable, Utterly Immoral WW1 Chaplain?' - Simon Keable Elliott
10 Apr

This talk is about a WW1 Chaplain, related to our speaker, who was a pre-war missionary in Africa, and who was closely involved with the formation of the South African Native Labour Corps. This talk tells their story, and Robert’s, in Europe during the War. The story will also move post war period when Robert wrote a best-selling war-related book which, shall we say was a bit raunchy for the period, and its impact on the rest of his life. A fascinating story well worth hearing.
