Michael Lucas, author of The Journey's End Battalion, held a talk at The Surrey History centre last week. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and he has been invited back to hold the talk again.
Michael’s initial interest in the 9th East Surrey was sparked off by family connections, and he has made an in-depth study of the history of the battalion - and of the part that R.C. Sherriff played in it. As well as consulting a wide range of published and archive sources, he has contacted descendants of soldiers who served in the battalion.
