Everyman at War – Clive Aslet author event
21 October 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
On Thursday 21st October, as part of the Two Moors Festival, author Clive Aslet (Country Life’s Editor-at-Large) will be talking about his acclaimed book Everyman at War at the St John the Baptist Church in Witheridge.
There are around 100,000 war memorials in Britain but how often do we know the names of the soldiers who are recorded on them ? Clive Aslet set out to discover the story behind one memorial (Lydford, on the edge of Dartmoor) to tell the tale of Everyman at War. His research has recreated the sometimes surprising, sometimes tragic lives of the twenty two men and one woman, living in the village who were under arms. He will also reveal the novel that he wrote which was inspired by one of the incidents.
The event is free of charge, but a ticket will be required. There will be a collection in aid of the Festival’s Education Programme.
