Next London meeting: Saturday, 4 March 2017, Gilly Carr

For our first meeting of 2017, we are delighted to welcome back Dr Gilly Carr, with a talk entitled A stub of pencil for a piece of bread: why Frank Falla is my hero of the occupation.

Gilly is Fellow and Director of Studies in Archaeology and Anthropology at St Catharine’s College Cambridge, and has written extensively about Channel Islander Occupation resistance and deportation. Her talk will cover the ‘Frank Falla archives’, and the website that she is building to cover the stories of islanders sent to Nazi prisons and concentration camps.

We have a new location – ‘Fountains Abbey’, 109 Praed Street, London W2 1RL. This is a historic Victorian pub, located almost next door to Paddington station, and we’ll meet for lunch at 12.30.
