‘To End All Wars’
29 November 2014
That was the title of an evening of poems, prose and songs held at Milland Village Hall in Hampshire. Just to prove that we don’t only shoot ships, Maritime Films UK filmed the event – but not really to show another string to our bow, actually to support this fund-raiser as it had been organized by a team including our ace presenter, Martin Muncaster (left in cast picture.) More than that, Hugh Bonneville (star of the new film ‘Paddington’, and of course ‘Downton Abbey’s Earl of Grantham in) had very kindly agreed to join up for the evening. All in aid of Combat Stress, which helps service people to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder – the terrible condition which won’t let your mind let go of traumatic events. And heaven knows our soldiers, sailors and aircrew have had plenty of those recently.
