Bring your sandwiches and come along for an interesting and educational lunchtime as the Living Archive MK’s Roger Kitchen tells the tragic story of 16 year old Albert French, apprentice engineer at Wolverton Works and soldier in The Kings Rifle Corps during World War I. Through official records and his letters back home to his family, discover what happened to this underage soldier and attempts 70 years later to ensure his memory was kept alive and accurate.
