Branch Event: 'Jig-a-jig Tommy'
21 Apr

Bruce Cherry is an author, tour guide and former university lecturer with a PhD in military history. Amongst other titles is his book ’They Didn't Want to Die Virgins; a study of Sex and Morale on the Western Front'. Bruce’s talk includes the British Army’s attitude toward sex, the soldier’s moral code, army morale, and the sexual lives of troops on the Western Front. Beyond the topics of venereal disease and sexual violence, Bruce explores the 'hidden' part of the Western Front story; how the military turned a blind eye to, and supported, the use of pornography, prostitution, and fraternization with local women - always mindful that this is also the story of a survival strategy for women. Don’t miss this riveting and exclusive talk!
