Serving and dying on the Isle of Wight - Remembering the servicemen who died on the Isle of Wight in WW II

About this Event

Rescheduled to November from June

Tony Bevis will give an update on the research he has conducted into Inquests held on the Isle of Wight relating to deaths occurring on the Island or in Solent waters.

The Isle of Wight must have seemed a safe posting to servicemen in World War II, however nearly 200 men died on the Island and over 100 airmen also crashed or were shot down over the Island. This talk looks at how some of them died ranging from disease through accidents to deaths on war service, it will draw on newspaper reports, military records and other published research and hopefully give a few tips on WWII research.

Until further notice, face coverings are optional at all meetings. We also need to record your name and contact details just in case we need to revert back to test and trace. Please sign in on arrival.
