World War One Cameos

Thanks to Jill Boyes for a really well organised evening, and for the research and preparation that had preceded it.

When so much has been written, both fact and fiction, around the subject,  one could be forgiven for feeling that enough has been expressed already, but still new light shines here and there, illuminating events both personal and universal.

Along with Jill’s own presentations, there were contributions from Anne Morley, Dorinda Cass and John Dickinson, containing direct family links through diaries and personal recollections passed on.

Maybe only now, a hundred years on, can we gain perspective on this terrible time.
