|Local Author Remembers War Heroes|
Stephen Cooper talks about his book The Final Whistle: The Great War in Fifteen Players
The book is about 15 men who played together for the Rosslyn Park Rugby Club in the Upper Richmond Road. They all fought in the war, but none lived to hear the final whistle.
Mr Cooper will be introduced by published military historian Paul McCue. There will be a chance to ask questions at the end and signed copies of the book will be available for £10.
The talk is free, but donations are welcome to the Rosslyn Park Injury Trust Fund.
Go along to the Civic Suite, Wandsworth High Street on Tuesday September 16 at 6.30pm for a 6.45pm start.
There is no need to book a place, but organisers would find it helpful to know the numbers of people attending. Please email email@example.com with “the final whistle” in the subject.
The talk is one of a string of events organised by the council and local groups. Others include:
