'Stanley Finch - A Medic at Gallipoli' - Karen Dennis
10 Jul

At the Hatfield Peverel venue, on this occasion we look at the wartime service of one man.

Chelmsford man Stanley Finch served in 88 Brigade (TF) Field Ambulance, part of the 29th Division. He served on Gallipoli, amongst others, and had a photo album which was ultimately donated by his family to the Essex Regiment Museum. Essex Branch Memorial Office, Karen Dennis, has prepared a talk based on Stanley’s service using this album. This is very much a story of a soldier within the wider army.

Meet at the Village Hall, Hatfield Peverel, in the room off the bar, from 7:30 for an 8pm start. Entrance donation is £3.50 and, as ever, those who are not members of the WFA are very welcome to attend. There is parking on site, and we have access to the bar.
