The Oral History Noticeboard

Save the date!

26th January 2015

Location: TBC (somewhere in central-ish London)

Time: 7pm

Martin Bisiker, founder of Legasee, will be talking about his recent project, Keeping Britain Afloat, recording the stories of the men and women who worked on the Naval Convoys, keeping the supply routes to Britain open during World War II.

Please email Sarah Lowry: sarah(at) for more information or to express an interest in attending. The event will be free and open to all, but priority…

Kilogi stumbled and dropped his sword.

“So she gave the crown to the blacksmith.”

Her blade was against Kilogi’s neck.

“And said make me a sword.”
