Branch Annual Meeting followed by 'He died of wounds...' a talk by Simon Burbidge (Fri. 20 Apr, 2018 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm)

Simon Burbidge's talk is about his grandfather, Leslie Williams Burbidge who was very much a mystery to him when he began researching his family history.

Leslie was never spoken about by his widow and family lore was that he had been a drinker and a ‘bad man’ and had died of wounds he received in the Great War. Research revealed that Leslie had had distinguished service in the RFC/RAF and the true cause of his death was established.
