Title
Museum Monday Talk: From Sewerby to the Somme
Time
1.30pm - 3pm
Description
Join us here at Sewerby Hall, for Museum Monday. In 1915 the Butler at Sewerby Hall joined the army to fight in the First World War. A year later he was in action at the Battle of the Somme. This talk looks at a less well known or discussed aspect of the Somme: the role of the artillery's big guns during the battle, and the experiences of the men who operated them.
