Peter Quinlivian, speaker at this month’s meeting and author of Forgotten Valour: The Story of Arthur Sullivan VC: Shy War Hero described how the 320 page book came about from following the threads of scant text on a plaque happened upon by chance.  He wondered aloud whether he was in the company of other ‘plaque fanciers’.

This was enough to send me back to update the post on the All England Eleven to include a photograph of the plaque on the footpath.

Peter generously shared how he goes about his research. He highly recommended the aptly named Trove where old newspapers can be read on line from the comfort of your own computer. As he warned – it is highly addictive!

Access Trove here.
