In a change to the published schedule of lectures, Friday 21st March sees Hugo Clarke talk on the topic of: “FIRST WORLD WAR: THE COMMONWEALTH CONTRIBUTION”.
As part of the nation’s centenary commemoration of the start of the First World War, the Department for Communities and Local Government has commissioned a series of talks to highlight the role of Commonwealth soldiers.
Join us to hear Hugo Clarke explore the contribution of soldiers such as Khudadad Khan - a Muslim soldier who was the first non-British individual to be awarded the Victoria Cross, Walter Tull - the first black British officer, and George Blackman from Barbados - the last survivor from the West Indies who served in the First World War and who passed away in 2003 aged 106.
Friday, 21st March at 7pm in the Charlesworth Link
