Admission —– Free

You may recall I told you that as part of the Leith Festival I and a couple of friends were to read some of the poems from the Leith Observer 1915 -1920 relating to the 1WW. This is to be held in Leith Library on Tuesday 15th. June 7 – 8 p.m. I attach a poster which advertises the event and would be grateful if you could print a copy and post it in a position that may attract people to the event.

I have collated over 100 poems and these will be available on CD at the presentation. I am placing a price of £5.00 / copy. The proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Scottish Merchant Navy Memorial Fund. The memorial is currently being constructed and will be unveiled on 26th. November by the Princess Royal.
