“Dad’s Army – Fact and Fiction” – a talk by Steve Roberts
December 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Steve takes a look at the real Home Guard, why it was formed and what it did, dispelling some popular myths. He also looks at the TV series, characters, actors, locations and the catchphrases. It is however worth remembering that the Home Guard lost over 1600 members, killed on duty during its lifetime. Two of its members posthumously received the George Cross. An entertaining talk that attempts to set the record straight.
Steve lives in Christchurch, originally from Worcester, he graduated as a teacher from Birmingham and taught in Brighton, Southend and Uxbridge. He later changed careers to become an IT Project Manager, and then changed paths again in 2012, moving to Christchurch and becoming a free-lance writer, private tutor and public speaker.
