Our new documentary film about the 137th Staffordshire Brigade and the role they played in breaking the Hindenburg Line and bringing about the end of the Great War will receive it’s premiere at the Potteries Museum on Wednesday the 19th of December. We have produced the film entitled ‘Staffordshire’s Territorials and the Breaking of the Hindenburg Line’ in association with the Staffordshire Regiment Museum with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Shot in the UK and France the film is presented by Brigadier (Retd) Jim Tanner OBE BA and tells the story of the 137th Staffordshire Brigade who spearheaded an attack across the St Quentin Canal in Northern France which broke the infamous German defense – the Hindenburg Line – which lead to Allied victory and the end of the Great War.
Doors open at the Potteries Museum at 7pm on Wednesday and the showing starts at 7.30. It’s a free event and there’s no need to book tickets so we hope to see you there.
