Lincolnshire's 20th Century Military Legacy
9.30am-12.30pm
 
In 1914-18 and 1939-45 the world went to war.  Lincolnshire is famous as the birthplace of the tank in World War 1, and as 'Bomber County' in the Second World war.  In this year of major anniversaries of the two conflicts, this course, led by Gary Taylor, will look at how the two wars came to Lincolnshire, and how the county responded.  In addition to briefly looking at the national and local contexts of the two wars, the course will also look at how the county was defended and the differing types and locations of defensive structures, some of which can still be seen and which provide a physical reminder of the world at war.
 
This is a two session course on 27th February and 6th March, from 9.30am - 12.30pm and is FREE to new learners.
 
Booking is essential.  For an enrolment form please email htladmin@lincsheritage.org or telephone 01529 461499.
