For the final branch meeting of our 2016-17 season we will be hearing from Fran Tomaselli on The Boys from Brazil.

This is an account of five brothers with family roots in Brazil who served in the Great War.

South America was a draw for many young men prior to the war as they exploited opportunities in mining and railway expansion as well as other business ventures.

Many returned to Britain anxious not to miss the chance to serve their mother country so this talk promises a variety of stories.

Doors open at 13.45 for a 14.00 start.

Members and guests are always welcome. We do ask for £3 to cover the cost of room hire.
