Some of you may remember that I was asked to speak at the 'Football & War' seminar last year at Wolverhampton University. In order to reach a wider audience outside of the West Midlands, it has now been decided to hold some of these events 'on the road' and as such, we have been asked to host the first of these at Champion Hill, in the clubhouse on Wednesday 27th March, running from 7pm to 10pm, with a break for refreshments approximately halfway through. The 'in house' speakers will be Roger Deason, Jack McInroy and myself, who will be talking about the Club's involvement in both World Wars as well as our player casualties. Following a break, we will then have two guest speakers - Tim Godden, the artist and illustrator who has recently drawn Edgar Kail and Hussein Hegazi (and Adolf Jager) and who has donated a percentage of the sales of these prints to the 12th Man. The other guest speaker will be Professor Gary Sheffield, the eminent military historian and author, who will be speaking about the wider connections between football and war. I would anticipate that Tim will have prints on sale and possibly Gary will have some of his books available as well. We will also make sure that we have copies of Roger's and my books available to anyone who hasn't got them as yet! This is a real feather in our cap to be asked to host this event, which is free to attend, so it would be great if we could get a really good turn out in support. It should be a fascinating evening and will be of interest, not only to history-loving Hamlet fans but also to anyone with a wider interest in history and football in general, no matter which club they support. We'll be getting this event publicised properly and will be pushing it on social media as well. As I get more details, I will post them on this thread.
