Honouring our Heroes

Dr Brieg Powel of Aberystwyth University presented a fascinating and detailed account of how society has honoured it’s military heroes.  He explained how political and historical circumstances sometimes can affect citations for various honours in each section of the armed forces.  His interesting paper was followed by a lengthy and lively question and answer session.

Stonyhurst is most grateful to Dr. Powel for giving up so much of his valuable time to travel to the college and deliver such an interesting and well-illustrated lecture.
