My grandfather’s war: memories from the Italo-Austrian front (1917-18)

Some people are lucky enough to have had a grandfather born in the 19th century (1898), fighting in WW1, surviving a wound, narrowly avoiding a major military disaster, recovering from the Spanish Fever and, on top of it all, leaving a memoir of his experience!
This Lifelong Learning Taster Lecture will trace his movements throughout 1917-18, against the backdrop of the Italo-Austrian front, the “White” War on the Alps.

When: Tuesday, November 24th | 11am

College Awareness Week is a national campaign which aims to promote the benefits of going to college, to help students of all ages to become college-ready and to showcase local role models. This year the campaign runs from 22 – 28 November.

Going to college is becoming more and more important. A college education helps students to fulfil their potential, allows them to undertake a course of study which can be both fascinating and challenging, and helps them to secure employment and decent living standards in the future. Individuals and society benefit from increased levels of educational attainment. Play your part in inspiring the next generation of college students and helping them to become college-ready!
