Kenilworth: The Green Room Plaque
Wed 9th January 2019 @ 7:45 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
The Green Room Plaque
A bronze memorial plaque commemorating twelve actors who died serving in WWI was discovered in a Rugby sale-room. The stories of the lives and deaths of these actors will be revealed and show something of the acting profession at the turn of the 20th Century. Military archives, contemporary newspapers and other sources allow their stories to be told, and family history techniques traced some living relatives and family photographs.
John Frearson will tell us of his efforts to identify the men mentioned.
