|OUR NEXT PATERSON SERIES LECTURE!
Sunday November 12, 2017 | 2 until 4 PM
From 'somewhere in France' young Mortimer G. Robbins wrote to his mother to let her know how he was faring. He joined the war effort as a member of the 5th Canadian Mounted Rifles and found himself, with a friend from Lynn, facing the enemy as Christmas 1916 approached. He did not live to see another Christmas.
Join us as we learn more about young Mortimer, his connection to Nahant, his path to joining the military, and the Battle of Passchendaele where Mortimer was killed in action.
William Cullen, veteran and Commander of the Mortimer G. Robbins Post No. 215, American Legion, is our guest speaker.
Bill also will speak briefly about the American Legion organization, which was formed nationally soon after the end of WWI.
