Peter Williams presents a Three-Part Tale which deals with the effects of the Great War as social history. Peter discusses the contrasts in how the casualties from the wealthier strata of society were memorialized with how those from the working classes were remembered. All classes suffered terribly, but some were better placed to ensure that their losses were not forgotten than were others. Venue: Even Swindon Community Centre, Jennings Street, Rodbourne, SN2 2BG
