DICKIE & EDWINA: THE LIVES AND LOVES OF THE MOUNTBATTENS
A Talk by Dr Andrew Lownie for the Tennant Lecture Series
The 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma is one of Britain’s major historical figures of the 20th century. Head of Combined Operations, Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in South East Asia during WWII, the last Viceroy and first Governor General of India, First Sea Lord and Chief of the Defence Staff, member of the Royal Family and mentor of Prince Philip and Prince Charles: his life provides an opportunity to look at the most important and controversial issues of the last century.
Andrew Lownie is a Royal Fellow of the Historical Society and former Cambridge History Fellow.
Please join us for drinks in the Lowry Dining Room from 7.30pm prior to the talk, which will start at 8.00pm in the Cawthorne Lecture Theatre. No booking is required, so please just turn up.
