Captain Fryatt and Nurse Edith Cavell

Captain Charles Fryatt

At our next meeting, on 31 March, we have a double bill.

Norma Shepherd will be speaking to us about Captain Charles Fryatt, a British mariner who was executed by the Germans for attempting to ram a U-boat in 1915.

And Bob Rush will continue the WW1 theme with a talk about nurse Edith Cavell, who helped soldiers on all sides of the conflict, yet was also executed by the Germans for treason.

The evening will begin with our Annual General Meeting – which we will keep as brief as possible.

Please do join us. Non-members are very welcome. The Society meets in Trinity Methodist church hall — for information about how to find us, click here.
