The Friends of Fulham Palace are delighted to host a talk on 11 April by author Vee Walker, the great-great-niece of Arthur Foley Winnington-Ingram (Bishop of London during World War I) about the intriguing story of her grandparents Tom and Evie Winnington-Ingram, as told in her debut novel "Major Tom’s War". 

Her book weaves together four different perspectives of World War I: those of Tom and Evie, of Lochdubh - Tom’s nemesis and of Gaston Derome, the mayor of a small French town on the Belgian border. These interconnecting stories across five years of conflict are firmly rooted in Vee’s family archives. Tom was born in India; a Major in the Indian Army Cavalry, he fought alongside Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims on the Western Front.

Doors open at 6.00pm, the talk will begin at 6.30pm. Tickets (including booking fee) are £8.00 per person for Friends and £10.00 per person for non-Friends. Tickets include a glass of wine and the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Major Tom’s War. For tickets go to the website listed below.
