Event Details

Our next Heritage Talk, at 7.30pm on Friday 7th August, is ‘The Derbyshire Yeomanry in the First World World’, an account of the regiment’s First World War experiences using diaries, letters, postcards and photography. The Yeomanry were the county’s mounted cavalry, initially a volunteer force drawn from civilians with experience of horseback, including areas like Wirksworth.

Our speaker is Dr Mike Galer, previously Senior Keeper of Military and Social History for many years at Derby Museums, and the creator of the current military gallery, Soldiers Story. He is currently General Manager/CEO, of Crich Tramway Village, home of the National Tramway Museum.
