'ASPECTS OF WORLD WAR ONE' 18 February 2020

Debra John paid us the compliment of a third visit to our Society. From the banality of everyday life to the major events of the Great War, Debra dramatised expertly the period 1914-1918.

She is a gifted actor and historian who provided us with cameos of life during that traumatic time, outlining the lives, wartime experiences and work of, among others, Welsh poet Ellis Evans ('Hedd Wyn') and George Butterworth, composer of 'A Shropshire Lad'.

Entertaining, challenging and evocative, Debra's presentation was another highlight of our varied programme of events.
