MONDAY 21st Oct   “Grandparents in the Great War" Dave Empson, 7.30pm Leiston Community Centre
David has collected medals and related military items all his life. He will present some of his collection, and tell you how you can research family members who served in WW1 or WW2. David's passion has always been WW1, but with the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2, it is important to remember what both our grandfathers' & fathers' generations did in two World Wars: they fought to end tyranny and wars. It’s a shame politicians are not medal collectors!

The talk will be at 7.30pm on Monday 21 October at Leiston Community Centre, IP16 4JX. Admission is £1 for members, £3 for non-members, including tea/coffee.

Please bring along any family medals or paperwork you may have.
