There will also be a wider focus to the afternoon through the inclusion of footage from an Italian documentary about the Italian families who risked their own lives to help allied escapees like Albert and about the prisoner of war camps around Verona.

The previously unseen footage will be led by the film’s director.

Memories of War - POW Albert Rhoades and the Courage of Italian Families will be at the Chapel on Saturday, July 20,at 2.30pm.

Entry is free and light refreshments will follow the presentation.
