Talk about what the life of a soldier in World War One was really like


Lancashire County Council’s libraries are helping people to discover what life was like for a Lancashire soldier during World War One.

An interesting talk will be held next month about the life and times of those who fought and died in the conflict.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: “This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War One. Many people’s imaginations have been captured by this and some are remembering members of their family that were involved in this global conflict.

“This talk should appeal to people of all ages with an interest in local history as well as those who want an insight into what life was like during World War One.”

The talk is free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited.

It will take place as follows:

Friday 9 November, 2.30pm to 3.30am, Barnoldswick Library.

Call 0300 123 6703 to book a place or call in at the library.

Anyone who lives in the UK can join a Lancashire library, either online or by visiting in person. It’s free and there are no age restrictions.
