Paul Cobb first visited the battlefields in 1969 and has been back many times undertaking research on various aspects of the war and leading tours. He is a former Membership Secretary and Vice Chair of the WFA. He has been on the speakers' circuit for many years; his main interest is the Australian Imperial Force, speaking at WFA branches in the UK and abroad, and contributing to radio and television programmes.
Paul's talk is a detailed examination of the disastrous attempt to dissuade the Germans from diverting resources to the Somme. It derives from his book, Fromelles 1916.
