On 28 June 1914,
Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo
… and the world went to war.
On Saturday 28 June 2014 we bring you:
Pip, Squeak and Wilfred — the record legacy of 1914-1918
at the Marlborough School, Woodstock, OX20 1LP
For just £10/head we have five good talks by five good speakers. Talks will cover the medals and medal cards, the ongoing discovery of (and identification of) memorabilia, and a plethora of other aspects of the record legacy from the period. There will be speakers from the National Archives as well as from academia and the family history world.
NB there is nowhere close by to buy lunch!
