Our talks for the coming U3A year begin on 9th
October 2019 with "A Tale of Two Crosses" by Tim Coltman. This
presentation traces the life of William Coltman who went to WW1 as a
stretcher bearer refusing to fight but going to war to save life and
not to take it.
As a result he was awarded the VC, MM &
bar and DCM & bar and described as the highest decorated
non-commissioned officer of the British Army.
