I would be so delighted if anyone is able to join me in supporting Talbot House, a crucial party of British Army history, which now faces closure. I declare a personal interest: Talbot House (or 'Toc H') was set up by my great grandfather, Neville Talbot, during WWI as a home from home for British soldiers on the Ypres Salient. He named it after his brother, Lt Gilbert Talbot, who was killed in action aged 21, leading men of the 7th Battalion Rifle Brigade in a doomed counter-attack in Hooge, Belgium. "Come on lads, now's our time!" were his last words, shortly before he was shot.
I realise there are endless other demands on the apparently boundless generosity of the British people. But my great-grandfather will haunt me if I don't sound the alarm!!
Thank you for reading. Alex
even if they dont, being somewhere near will help, I have had loads of charities sending me letters asking for money, as they all have overpaid CEOs they can take a running jumpJust given some money to this appeal, it's now just over 69,000 euros . Looks like they should make it!
