The Lost Boys of Britannia Royal Naval College
Thu 18 May 2017, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
Dr Jane Harrold of Britannia Royal Naval College tells the story of the schoolboys sent to war aged just 15. A generation of officer cadets was sent to sea immediately on the outbreak of the First World War and many never returned. This evening talk at the Flavel Centre will use new research into the College's unique archive collections to explore this deeply moving and little known aspect of Devon's naval history.
Tickets are free but places are limited and must be booked in advance. Complimentary refreshments.
