Recommended Posts

Sorry for the short notice but if anyone is interested and local I will be giving a talk at Basford Library 10.30am in the morning (10th October) about the letters my Grandfather wrote home from the Western front during WW1.

Thanks for the good wishes. It went well. They have local interest talks quite often.. Not a big turnout but apparently the usual crowd turned up plus 2 extras.

It's good that all this information is passed on to others.just out of interest,was there any "younger" people there?

Well it depends how old you are as to your definition of youngsters but no. I think the youngest attendee was over 70 or thereabouts. About 18 in total. Mostly those who always attend the talks there plus 2 who came specifically as they were interested in the subject. One chap did nod off but the regulars assured me I did well as he stayed awake at least 10 minutes longer than he usually manages. There is apparently a local school who are learning about WW1 who have expressed an interest in the talk so maybe that will work out.

I've been to some of those local history talks at various locations (although I've not yet experienced one by letsavagoo).  On more than one occasion I'm certain I was the youngest person there.
