Our next talk is:
"Cambrai 1917 - The Battle of Lateau Wood"
Tuesday 14th November 2017 at 7.30pm
"At 7 am on November 30th a tremendous bombardment was suddenly opened along the whole British front line. It developed rapidly in intensity and within a short time all communications with the front line were severed...."
The Battle of Cambrai in #WW1 is known famously for the first use of massed tanks, however less known is the fate of those units caught up in the German counter-attack of 30th November 1917.
For one unit, the 6th Battalion Royal West Kents, ended the day with its strength being only one officer and 17 other ranks. This is their story.
Presented in it's 100th anniversary year by Ian Sanders.
All are welcome and a lively discussion is guaranteed!
Admission £4 per attendee including tea and coffee.
