Our virtual event hosted by Durham County Record Office is presented by Steve Shannon, military researcher and takes place between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

The concentration camp at Belsen is infamous, but less well known is the involvement of a County Durham artillery regiment. This talk explores the stories of those gunners and their unforgettable experiences in the closing days of the Second World War, as discovered through records in the Durham Light Infantry Archive, held by Durham County Record Office.
