Lutyens and the Great War
A lecture by Tim Skelton
Start: 8th March 2019 7:30pm
This Lecture will be a 7.30pm start
Tim is a retired chartered surveyor and, twenty years ago, started researching the various memorials that were designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in connection with the dead of World War One, which included his extensive work for the then Imperial War Graves Commission - it was part of his work that had never before been investigated in detail. It led, in turn to the opportunity to write a book “Lutyens And The Great War” with Gerald Gliddon (published 2008).
The illustrated talk will look at all of the aspects of this work and will include some of the stories behind the commissioning of individual memorials which is, in itself, a revealing portrait of community life in the years after the end of the War.
