To mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein, author Julian Frances is launching his new title on the life and art of Captain Tom Chadwick MC.
Chadwick, who served in the 3rd Hussars, kept a beautifully illustrated diary during his service, which is made more poignant as it recorded the death of his brother (also of the 3rd Hussars) just two days before his own death during the Battle of El Alamein on this date seventy years ago. In this lecture, Francis shares the artwork and memories Chadwick recorded in his moving diaries.
