Batcombe Branch Annual Lecture

9th October 2015

18:00hrs at Batcombe Village Hall 

Our annual lecture entitled
"Myths, lies and personal prejudices in WW1" 
will be given by Lt.Gen. Sir Robert Fry KCB CBE who is renowned not just for his glittering military career and the subsequent business and academic roles he holds, but also for the masterful delivery of his illustrated lectures.

  To book your place in the Village Hall either ring 01749 831546 or email niall@warry.go-plus.net. The cost will only be £10-00 each including wine and nibbles. When sending your cheque please make it out to Royal British Legion Batcombe Branch or Help for Heroes, of which General Rob is a trustee. 

There is a limit on seats in the hall and pre-bookings go fast for our lecture each year, so it would be as well to act now!
