There will be an intriguing talk delivered by the author of a Second World War novel this Thursday to raise funds and awareness for the town’s 1940s weekend later this year.

Guy McElveny, is the author of The Stranger at the Window, which was inspired by the real-life story of his great-uncle, Sgt Geoffrey Deeley, a Black Country airman who flew 25 operations with Bomber Command.

He took part in raids on Berlin, Leipzig and the attack on Mont Fleury battery in support of D-Day.

Guy has given talks at libraries throughout the West Midlands as well as readings for veterans at Yorkshire Air Museum and at RAF and Aircrew Associations.

The talk gives an insight into what life was like in Bomber Command, drawing on his family's wartime letters and memories as well as meetings with WW2 veterans.

Doors open at the Town Hall at 7pm for talk at 7.30pm. Admission is £5 to include chance of winning signed copy of Guy's book. Light refreshments are also available.
