The Lee in the First World War

Pitstone & Ivinghoe Museum Society

Programme 2014


 All meetings are held in the Meeting Room in the Pitstone Green Museum at 8pm.


Mike Senior lives in The Lee and is a local historian and author of a  book, ‘No Finer Courage’ about the impact of war on his village.  He has had a life-long interest in the First World War and, since his retirement, he has devoted much of his time to research, lecturing and writing about aspects of the Western Front.  Although this talk is about The Lee in the First World War,  the same basic story would apply to thousands of villages around the UK.    It is about village men who went to war together and died together in 1916 and it is about those who remained at home.
