Fundraising news: A talk on the life of General Sir Charles Monro
On Friday 11th January over 50 people attended a talk, in aid of the David Hoyle Foundation, regarding the life of Sir General Charles Munro, given by author Patrick Crowley.
Patrick served in the British Army for 34 years and is the author of 'A Guide to The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment', 'Afghanistan - The Three Wars', 'The Infantry Regiments of Surrey', 'Kut 1916 - The Forgotten British Disaster in Iraq' and 'Loyal to Empire - The Life of General Sir Charles Monro 1860-1929'.
