Event description

Description

During the First World War, many public buildings and large private houses were converted into emergency hospitals. This talk by Ken Crowe, former curator of Southend Museums and author of Southend and the Great War, 1914-1918, will examine the part that Southend played in the mammoth effort to treat the wounded returning from the Western Front.

Essex History Group talks have become so popular in recent months that we ar trialling running all talks twice. This talk will also take place on Tuesday 4 April, 10.30am-12.00noon. Please book for only one of the dates.

Advance booking essential. Reserve your place here for free.

Admission is £3 on the door (includes tea or coffee and biscuits)



The Essex History Group meets at the Essex Record Office for talks on a variety of historical subjects. There is no formal membership, and all are welcome.
