'Kettering Heroes of World War II' by John Stanyard
Friday 8 May
Kettering’s World War Two memorial lists the names of nearly 300 men of Kettering who died in World War Two. All of the Armed Services are represented and all the major actions in World War Two.
The talk – “Kettering Heroes of World War Two”, by John Stanyard, covers a cross section of those commemorated including a George Cross winner, three men who were lost when HMS Hood was sunk by the Bismark, one of the Cockleshell heroes, three brothers from the same family. The talk is based on John’s on-going research of all the names on the memorial.
Come along and hear about the brave deeds carried out by Kettering men in World War Two. If you have a relative commemorated on the memorial, come along to the talk. John looks forward to meeting you and sharing his research with you.
The Friends of Kettering Art Gallery and Museum also host a range of evening talks open to both members and non-members. For more information, please visit their website or their list of talks on our website.
