A year in the life of Arthur James Purfield (Battle of Loos talk) @ Baldock Arts & Heritage Centre, Old Town Hall, High Street SG7 6AR
May 8 @ 6:30 pm

 

September 1915 saw the start of one of the greatest battles of the First World War – the Battle of Loos.

Jim Purfield enlisted in Hitchin in September 1914 and returned to his native Kent to join his local battalion. He kept a daily diary for the next year, and from this, his Battalion records and official war records, we tell the story of his year which included the decimation of his battalion at Loos

In this illustrated talk we follow the personal record of this young man, who, along with thousands of others, was drawn into the hell of that war.

Venue open at 6:30pm, talk starts at 7pm
