    All Over By Christmas -
    Life on the Home Front in Barnet During WWI               


    David Berguer
    8 p.m. Thursday
    26 November
    Stephens House


    Much has been written about the First World War but little has been told about what was happening on the Home Front - conscription, rationing, Zeppelin raids, propaganda and industrial unrest. David Berguer will describe life in Barnet during the war when he delivers the twentieth Jean Scott Memorial Lecture on Thursday, 26 November.

    David Berguer is Chairman of the Friern Barnet & District Local History Society, and has written three books on the local area. 'All Over by Christmas', his latest book, charts the progress of the War in Britain as a whole, in London and in particular the area of north west London covering Barnet, Finchley, Friern Barnet, New Southgate and Whetstone.

    The meeting will be held at Stephens House, 17 East End Road, Finchley N3 3QE and will begin at 8 p.m. Refreshments will be available from 7.30 p.m.
