We are looking forward to welcoming Peter Hart to the branch once again. He has been a regular speaker for us over many years, and we have missed his visits over the past couple of years.
Peter worked as the Oral Historian at the Imperial War Museum between 1981 and 2020. In that time he interviewed innumerable veterans of both World Wars. He has a huge knowledge of the First World War and in particular of Gallipoli where he regularly takes battlefield tours.
He has written numerous books and will no double bring some for sale on the night.
