|Author Diane Atkinson Coming to Fulham Library|
Talk about new book on two women on the Western Front
Diane Atkinson will be giving a talk at Fulham library on July 23 on her newly published book Elsie and Mairi Go to War: Two Extraordinary Women on the Western Front.
The book tells the story of Elsie Knocker and Mairi Chisholm, the two most famous women of the First World War. They met at a motorcycle club in Bournemouth, and when war broke out they roared off to London 'to do their bit'.
Within a month
they had set up their own first-aid post a hundred yards from the villiage of Pervyse, near Ypres.
Diane's talk will begin at 7.30pm on July 23. Tickets for this event are free and available at the library or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
