Talk by Dr. John Sutton

The unofficial Christmas Truce of 1914, is justly famous. British and German soldiers disobeyed orders, unilaterally called a ceasefire, meeting in no-man’s land.
The talk focuses on the Leicestershire Regiment including the personal story of an ancestor who was killed on that Christmas Day.
