Thursday October 11th 2018 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Centre for Heritage & Family History
Abbey Square, Reading

An affecting account of railway activities in England and in France during the Great War. This will include the transport and care of the wounded back to Blighty with some focus on South Oxfordshire and West Berkshire. Railways permitted the mass movements of munitions, equipment and men – and the harrowing resulting casualties, many of whom were taken through the Thames Valley.

Tickets: £5 (society members £4) includes tea and cake after the talk.
