Audlem resident Dinah Andrew will be giving the second of her talks tomorrow at Nantwich Museum entitled Lord Combermere: Distinguished Soldier and Country Gentleman.

Lord Combermere was born in 1773 and christened Stapleton Cotton. He enjoyed a distinguished military career, was much decorated and in 1855 gained the rank of Field Marshal. The family lived at Combermere Abbey, near Nantwich.

Last Wednesday's talk was entitled The Cheshire Hero and explored his life and career up to 1815, including his involvement in the Peninsular Wars.

Tomorrow, 28th April, the title is The Victor of Bhurtpore. Learn about his years in the West Indies and in India.

The final talk in the series will be on 5th May: A Country Gentleman and his Legacy. Find out about the final chapter of his life between 1830 and 1865, and his legacy.

The talks start at 3.00pm and are on Wednesdays. The talks will take place in the Joseph Heler Room (upstairs) at Nantwich Museum.
