World war talk

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

HEDGER­LEY: Dr Mike Se­nior will present A Bucks Vil­lage in the Great War on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 15 at 8pm in the Memo­rial Hall, Kiln Lane.

Many of the Bucks men who en­listed in the First World War joined the lo­cal TA unit, the Bucks Bat­tal­ion.

After train­ing, they were posted to the Western Front and took part in the at­tack at Fromelles in July 1916.

The talk cen­tres on the dis­cov­ery, 92 years later, of a mass burial pit that was dis­cov­ered near Fromelles and, by means of DNA, a num­ber of the re­mains of sol­diers from Bucks were iden­ti­fied.

Call John Love­lock on 01753 647 187 or email jdlove­lock@bt­in­ter­net. com for more in­for­ma­tion about the talk.
