A Shipyard at War

April 20, 2015



Please join us at Fairfield Heritage on Wednesday (22nd April) evening for a talk by Ian Johnston, maritime historian and author, about his latest book “A Shipyard at War”. This is a book of stunning photographs taken at John Browns during WW1 and there will be a rare chance to buy a copy and get it signed by Ian.

Fairfield Heritage will be open from 6pm for those who would like to see the displays or have a cuppa and the talk will start at 7pm in the Boardroom.

To book a free place, please call 0141 445 2340.

We look forward to seeing you there!
