17th May at Ramsgate Tunnels
Isaac Naylor presents a slightly different view of the Home Guard than the often humourous one provided on television and at the cinema by ‘Dads Army’. The Local Defence Volunteers, later to become the Home Guard form a fascinating part of both Ramsgate’s military history and most other towns and villages in the South East. So if you want to hear the true stories of the real life Captain Mainwaring, Sergeant Wilson and Corporal Jones then join us at 19.00hrs (7pm) at the tunnels for this fascinating evening when Isaac puts Ramsgate’s home guard into context within the wider history of the force, and explains the part they played in defending their town.
