Saturday 6th June 2015 at 10.30 a.m. in The Grapes.
Eileen Brereton will speak about her recent research and publication on nursing in the First World War, and will have copies of her book for sale.
This may be of particular interest to those who remember Miss Ursula Lascelles, a well known Slingsby resident who lived at Slingsby Heights for nearly 100 years.
She was a nurse during the First World War. She kept a journal – a mixture of commentary on current events, cuttings and other memorabilia, now in the County Archives, which Mrs Brereton has drawn on for her research.
This event has been organised by our Local History Group.
Entrance, including coffee – £2.50
