THE Tenbury Wells Museum and History Group welcomes members and non-members to their March talk entitled Flora Sandes, a Remarkable Woman.

The talk will be an illustrated one, given by Wilma Hayes from In The Sticks Talks.

Flora was a British woman who served as an officer of the Royal Serbian Army during the First World War.

She was the only British woman to officially serve as a soldier in the First World War - initially a St John Ambulance volunteer.

She travelled to Serbia, where she was welcomed and formally enrolled in the Serbian army. She was subsequently promoted to the rank of Sergeant Major and, after the war, to Captain.

She was decorated with seven medals.

If you want to know more about this remarkable British woman then come along to the Pump Rooms, Tenbury Wells on Thursday, March 7. The talk will commence at 7.30pm, with tea and coffee being served from 7pm.

All are welcome, admission is free to members and only £3 to guests/non-members. For more information call Mike Watkins on 01584 711425.
