Saints At War Talk On Thursday Afternoon
Wednesday, 18th Jul 2018 15:06

Club historian David Bull will be giving his talk at the Civic Centre on Thursday afternoon, come along and find out what happened to the club and it's players in the Second World War.

Club historian David Bull will be giving an illustrated talk on Thursday 19 July at 3.00 p.m. in the Civic Centre Lecture Theatre.

The talk will feature SAINTS AT WAR: what happened to Southampton’s Footballers in the Second World War.
It will cover what happened to those players who remained at home:
 why Southampton attracted few star guests and were jealous of Aldershot.
 how so many matches were affected by air-raid warnings.
 why the Saints had to play a ‘home’ match at Fratton Park.
 what happened when Bristol City arrived at The Dell with only two players.
…. and much, much more.

And, for those who served overseas:
 what it meant to serve on an Arctic Convoy to Russia’s frozen north-west.
 how one ex-Saint serving in the Army was killed – while sitting in a classroom in sight of Arnhem’s ‘bridge too far’.
 how to escape from Stalag VIIIB by slicing off a finger.
… and yet more of those who served – and, in some cases, died – in the air or at sea.

Tickets are £4 which includes admission to the exhibition WE MARCH ON: Southampton Football Club, Then and Now in the Sea City Museum. Book in advance on 023 8083 4536 or email museums@southampton.gov.uk.
