Talk:  Mike Cooper - More than Bully Beef and Jam in the Great War


When:

Friday 22 February, 10.30am to 12noon 

Where:

Wokingham Library 


The idea of food in World War One usually conjures up ideas of bully beef and biscuits, with plum and apple jam. However, food turned into a vital factor in determining how the War was fought and how it was lost.  This talk looks at the soldier’s rations, food at home in Britain, and the role of food in economic warfare.


£5 charge. To book a place please call (0118) 978 1368.
