Bellringers in the Great War

Robert Wellen studied at Lancaster University and has an MA in Historical Research.
He is also a bell ringer in Gillingham and current Master of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers.

The illustrated talk is based on a booklet that he produced last year after five years of commemorations across the Guild marking the centenary of the Great War.

Included in the talk is a general review of the 90 ringers from the Diocese known to have died in that war; some of their poignant individual stories (including some local to Gillingham) and details of the memorials to them, including in Salisbury Cathedral.

Robert will have copies of his booklet for sale at £5 each.
