“COMING TO TERMS WITH WAR: THE EXPERIENCE OF ARMY CHAPLAINS IN 1914-15”
A Talk by
Reverend Dr Peter Howson
Was on the 23rd February 2015 in The McDonald Gallery, Gurkha Museum
The Reverend Dr Peter Howson has completed a number of studies into the organisation of Army Chaplaincy, including and especially during the First World War. His book Muddling Through, published in 2013, aptly describes the organisation of Army Chaplaincy in 1914-15. Chaplains, however, were never far from the front.
Two were captured on the retreat from Mons to Le Cateau. Peter Howson served 25 years as an army chaplain. He is now the minister in charge of Weybridge Methodist Church. His talk will centre on the different experiences of three chaplains who went to war in August 1914 as a means of illustrating what it was like to be a chaplain in the Army in 1914-15. Copies of his book Muddling Through will be available for purchase and signature.
