Tuesday 19th May will be the last evening talk in our 2014-2015 series on the theme of Great Conflicts. The talk will start at 7.30pm in the usual venue of Iffley Church Hall, Church Way Iffley, OX44EG. Non-members are always welcome, there is a door charge of £2.
Our speaker will be Julie Summers, author, broadcaster, historian – and we are proud to add, fellow east Oxford resident.
She will be sharing with us her insights into the Home Front of WW2 thanks to her general fascination with, and research into, this topic. Recently her work into the wartime role of the Women’s Institute led to the publication of a book with the delightful title Jambusters!
On May 3, ITV started a new series on Sunday evenings called Home Fires, based on Julie’s research. If you missed it, Episode 1 is available via ITV player – and it should remain available till about the end of May.
