An Invitation to a Memorial Service in memory of World War II hero, Major Hugh Seagrim

We are delighted that the historian and author Phillip Davies will be speaking at the Festival about his fascinating book, ‘Lost Warriors’ which was published earlier this year. The book tells the extraordinary story of Major Hugh Seagrim who fought with his Karen comrades behind Japanese lines in the 2nd World War.

Following the Festival, at 11.30 on Remembrance Sunday 12 November, there will be a memorial service and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque in memory of Major Seagrim and Karen colleagues at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Yangon. Anyone interested in attending this event should contact Phillip at:  ideally by 20 October 2017.
