This coming Friday 1st June I shall be speaking to the Boston branch of the Lincolnshire Family History Society. My subject will be the life of a British soldier and his family in Wellington’s army. The event takes place at the Church of the Latter Day Saints, Woodthorpe Avenue, Boston, PE21 0LY, starting at 7:30pm.
Another date for your diary is Monday 18th June, which of course is the day on which the Battle of Waterloo was fought. On that momentous date I shall be speaking in the Officers’ Mess of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum at the Tower of London. My talk will cover events within the battle and is given on behalf of the Battlefields Trust. Admission is by a donation of £25 (£20 for members of the Battlefields Trust), the event starts at 12:30pm and a sandwich lunch is included.
