Why did Southampton have to play a match at Fratton Park? Which club arrived at The Dell with only two players? Why were Saints jealous of Aldershot?

All of these questions and more will be answered on Thursday 19 July, as club historian David Bull is set to give his Saints at War: What happened to Southampton’s footballers in the Second World War talk.
Starting at 3pm in the SeaCity Museum’s Art Gallery Lecture Theatre, this generously-illustrated talk will cover what happened to those players that remained at home in addition to those who served overseas.

Ex-Saint Sid Gueran was killed in action in sight of Arnhem's "bridge too far." His story is one of many showcased in Dave Bull's dive into the past.

As well as discussing the former Saints players that served, Bull will also paint a fascinating picture of how football – at all levels - was impacted by the Second World War.
Tickets for this not-to-miss event are priced at just £4, which also includes entry to the popular We March On: Southampton Football Club, Then and Now exhibition at SeaCity Museum.
