The new Surrey Heath Literary Festival began on Monday with a most encouraging attendance for Andy Robertshaw’s talk about the research for his book Ghosts on the Somme, Filming the Battle June – July 1916.
Andy Robertshaw, curator of the RLC Museum in Deepcut, is a wonderfully engaging speaker. He explained to an attentive audience where the truth lay in the famous film of the Battle of the Somme. Fascinating stuff.
I queued up as did many others to get Andy to write a commemorative not in my copy of his book.
