Keith Brigstock, who was a gunner himself for over 20 years in the Royal Artillery and is still employed by the Ministry of Defence at Larkhill, is a keen military historian with a particular interest in the Royal Artillery during the Second World War.
Keith has had a life-long fascination with military history, and now speaks regularly on a range of Second World War subjects. He is a member of The Garrison Artillery Volunteers, a volunteer hobby group of historians whose passion is the Royal Artillery. The group undertakes historical displays depicting various aspects of life in the Royal Artillery during the twentieth century.
During the evening, Keith Brigstock will explore the 300-year history of the royal regiment, dispelling the myths, uncovering the truths and highlighting its prominent role in national history.
