Historian Paddy Bradley shares his knowledge

A fascinating visit to Paddy Bradley, a Redruth historian who has a fantastic collection of photographs and documents. I had expected to talk mostly about the three rugby matches played at the Front between Cornwall and Devon soldiers after Camborne Rugby Club sent out a rugby ball.
But in fact Paddy knew a lot, too, about Redruth Wesleyan Young Men's Bible Club and their leader, Harry Rich. We are borrowing letters written from members of the Bible Class from the County Records Office, Truro, to display at our exhibition Heart of Conflict at the Cornish Studies LIbrary, Redruth.
Paddy had several photographs of this Young Men's Clubs outings before the war, and the aforementioned Mr Rich. Fantastic.
