Richmond Library: Ian Trafford – Into The Unknown

Saturday 14th November 2020

As Marahau resident Ian Trafford says, “My grandfather wanted his secret war diary burned. I’ve just published it.”

In this special author talk, Ian Trafford talks about his grandfather Alick’s secret war time diaries, and his decision to publish them.

“Alick sent my father to his ceiling cavity to retrieve a secret package for burning – the diaries of his private war. No son could resist a peek into his father’s hidden past. They never reached the fire.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the story of a “tough bastard, but a man too sensitive for war”.
