'From Batley Boy to Bradford PAL' : an author talk by John Broadhead

About the event

Inspired by his father's diary of 1916, which was handed to him shortly before his father's death, local author John Broadhead has painstakingly researched his father's war. The diary and the author's use of official records, newspaper reports and memoirs reveal the stark horror of what faced the nation's youth during WWI.

In this talk, John Broadhead reveals the story of an ordinary soldier, but quite a remarkable person.
