Man forced to fight

Rossendale Free Press - - First World War Centenary -

A BOOK talk for First World War en­thu­si­asts will come to Bacup Li­brary.

David He­witt will dis­cuss his book Joseph, 1917 - which tells the story of a Lan­cashire man who was forced to fight in the Great War even though he’d al­ready vol­un­teered.

The case caused a huge row, and it prompted a group of lo­cal coun­cil­lors to go out on strike. The event is on Wednes­day, Novem­ber 14.
