An update on the book launch

Tuesday the 19th August saw the launch of ‘The upper Culm Valley before, during and after The Great War’.

Over 75 people were in attendance and enjoyed some short words form Michael Cooper, Phil Norrey, Chief Executive of Devon County Council, and Lt Col Tim Courtenay RM.

During the launch almost 140 copies of the book were sold. Copies still remain and can be purchased by emailing
