Festival talks by John Hamilton


In conversation with Major General Andrew Cumming

We are incredibly fortunate to welcome the remarkable 101-year-old John Hamilton, who will discuss his extraordinarily varied military career with Major General Andrew Cumming. Over the course of 25 years, John was evacuated from Dunkirk, worked as a instructor at the Recce Corps Training Centre in Catterick, took the German surrender in Norway, commanded the A Squadron of the King’s Dragoon Guards in Libya and served with the Arab Legion in Jordan as a major. Not to be missed!
