The Road to Messines-Underground warfare on the Western front 1915-1917


On the 17th of February 2015 the Trevithick Society will be hosting a talk, by Rick Stewart,  on the amazing story of underground warfare on the Western Front.

 7:30pm at the  Liskeard Public Hall Liskeard  (in the Long Room). Non members welcome (£2 Door donation), and tea, coffee and the normal array of biccys will be available. If you are interested in mining history, or military history this will be a fascinating evening.

Rick Stewart is best-known as the author of the definitive book on the Devon Great Consols Mine and for  appearances on the Television Series ‘The Edwardian Farm’ , as its mining expert. His underground slant on the Great War is an evening to look forward to.
