East Africa, the forgotten front, told by Harold Downs DCM, a lad from Hull who was conned into joining the RGA by the recruiting Sgt. He ended up in Africa, six months away from the army postal service, with little food, lions all around and a trail of broken down vehicles littering Africa behind them as they searched for Von Lettow Vorbeck and his men.
Please note, the previously advertised talk that was on 6 June was postponed and the date has been moved to 13 June to avoid clashing with Diamond Jubilee events.
Western Front Association Members and non-members are equally welcome. We ask for a modest £4 donation on the door. Any new visitors will be assured of an welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
