On Wednesday 5th December, at 7.30pm, in the Function Room of the Village Hall, Lympstone History Society is putting on a talk by Mr Todd Gray on “Blackshirts in Devon”.

The subject was largely covered up after the WWII, with family members hiding their involvement from the next generation as political correctness swung in the opposite direction. Todd’s research has revealed membership lists for Devon and insight to this fascist organization whose rallies were common place in the 1930s, leaving the question “Were any of your family a Blackshirt?”

Admission is just £3 including refreshments – plus a chance to buy Todd’s books just in time for Christmas.
