Vivat Shirburnia book coverSaturday 8 March 2014, 2.30pm, Roman Catholic Hall, Westbury, Sherborne, Dorset.

Drawing on the rich archive of Sherborne School Patrick Francis will explore the impact of the Great War on the School community.  Over 220 young men were to lay down their lives during those terrible years which saw war on a truly industrial scale. His well-illustrated talk will also highlight the actions of those who lived locally, here in Sherborne.
