Monthly talk March 2019 with Ciaran Stoker

“Belgian Refugees in Devon during the Great War” by Ciaran Stoker.

In 1914 no less than 250,000 refugees fled to Britain after their country was invaded.

Devon played its part in accommodating this wave of humanity, and Ciaran told us how this was achieved, along with some of the individual stories of those times.

An exceptional, very well presented and researched talk.
