Bombs, Bullets and Bayonets – The Weapons of Trench Warfare by Andy Robertshaw
This month we welcome back a speaker who is well known to many of us. Andy Robertshaw, historian, author and TV presenter will be talking about bombs, bullets and bayonets – the weapons of trench warfare. Andy will be bringing along (inert!) examples of these weapons for what promises to be an engaging and interesting evening.
This meeting will be held in Cobham and will not be streamed on Zoom.
Members of The Western Front Association and non-members are equally welcome. We ask for a modest £3 donation on the door. This includes tea, coffee and biscuits at the break (before the Q&A session with the speaker).
Members joining us at Cobham can use our new cashless card system and use their credit card/phone with the new reader that will be available at the signing in desk. To help make things easier and safer, we are asking those coming to Cobham to bring their own mug for coffee or tea.
Andy’s talk starts at 8pm. Doors open at Cobham at 7:15pm and the meeting starts at 7:45pm.
