Andrew Fletcher with “Bathurst’s WW1 Vets - the stories they never told……” Let Andrew share some tales of our veteran’s experiences, some good, some not so good, and others downright forgettable. We will hear how our nurses suffered great hardships just to keep nursing the men. We will meet some locals whose war was very short, others who had done it all before, several served in the South African War, but did anyone serve in the Soudan? We have heard that the British officers considered our troops to be an undisciplined rabble with no regard for the letter of military law let alone civil law, so let’s hear some of their stories. Come along you might hear something about one of your ancestors.
