JANUARY TALK

For this month’s talk we have an Official guide Mr. Rod Lewis of the National Memorial Arboretum. He will tell us about the Traumatic Events in World War 1 when soldiers accused of desertion were summarily executed. Many of these men were later found to have suffered from what we now know as PTSD. It was then known as shell shock.
This was not a good memory of our war time history but it is a story that must be told.

ROD LEWIS “SHOT AT DAWN”
