Meeting with Brighton historian

Nicola Benge The Orange Lilies Project Manager met with local historian Trevor Povey recently to discuss the project and benefit from his years of experience and research on WWI and Brighton in the Somme.20160617_144916.jpg

It was a very illuminating discussion and really helped to clarify our project direction and background, as well as gaining access to some great local image and photography in Brighton, Hove and Portslade, training camps and more from 1916 and beyond.

Trevor has also been advising Brighton Museum on their own Battle of Boar’s Head exhibition which starts on 30th June 2016.

Thanks to Trevor for his time and knowledge!
