Event Description

In 2001, Sam Eedle was approached by an elderly widow in Tewkesbury.  Her uncle, Heneage Bloxham, had disappeared on the Western Front and nobody in her family was able to tell her what actually happened to him.  By accessing the available records, maps and war diaries, and by taking a diversion to the battlefield while on a trip to France, Sam was able to find out what happened to him. This talk is the result of that search, a fascinating tale of what can be uncovered when you know where to look.

  • Duration: 60 mins

Meet the Host, Sam Eedle

Sam Eedle lives in Gloucestershire and works in the advertising, design and printing business.  Ever since he researched his own grandparents in the 1990s, the stories of the men of Britain’s volunteer armies who went away to war in 1914 have been an abiding interest. When the day-job allows he also takes the occasional research commission.  He is married, with two adult daughters.  His other interests are in Ancient and Medieval history, getting wet and muddy doing historical re-enactments and walking his dog.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

Resources

The Disappearance of Heneage Bloxham has supplementary learning materials provided by the event host. Once you book an event, you will get access to these resources.

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
