Advance notice of August talk

Our talk on Monday 13th August will be presented by Chris Durrant, a former Guildford Grammar teacher.  His talk is called ‘Under the Same Moon, A Story from the Great War’.

While researching his uncle’s past, he and wife Shirley, a housemother at Guildford Grammar boarding school, dug into the history of the 46 Guildford Grammar School students and two staff who perished overseas in the conflict. Their research led them to the visit the graves or memorials for all but two of the local heroes across Gallipoli, France, Belgium and England, and one in Geraldton. Elements of his uncle’s story became the inspiration for his novel which takes places across worlds, from small English towns to  battle field nursing stations.

The talk will be held at the Mechanics Institute, Meadow Street, GUILDFORD
Monday 13th August 2018, 7 pm for 7.30 pm.
All welcome
