Saints At War The Illustrated Talk
Sunday, 8th Jul 2018 11:56
If you are interested in the history of the club then why not pop along to a talk to be given by club historian David Bull on what happened to our players during the Second World War
If you’re looking for some Saints-related entertainment, after the World Cup Final and the Saints’ China tour and as you wait for the new season to begin, why not visit the exhibition, WE MARCH ON: Southampton Football Club, then and now, at the SeaCity Museum, daily 10 a.m to 5 p.m?
And you can get two for the price of one if you book to hear the talk talk to be given by David Bull, at 3 p.m on 19 July, when admission to the talk also includes entry to the exhibition
This generously-illustrated talk in the Civic Centre Lecture Theatre, by club historian David Bull, features SAINTS AT WAR: what happened to Southampton’s Footballers in the Second World War.
It will cover what happened to those players who remained at home:
why Southampton attracted few star guests and were jealous of Aldershot.
…. and much, much more.
And, for those who served overseas:
what it meant to serve on an Arctic Convoy to Russia’s frozen north-west.
… and yet more of those who served – and, in some cases, died – in the air or at sea.
The history of the club has been sadly overlooked over the years, but David and his fellow Hagiologists have strived to make sure that it is not forgotten.
