THE last in a series of museum talks will tell of the involvement of the Green Howards in 1920s Shanghai.

The Green Howards Museum, Richmond, is hosting the talk on Tuesday, October 22 at 7pm.

Fiona Hall from the museum said: "After World War I the Green Howards were in Shanghai, and it is part of the regiment's history that is not that well known.

"It is something a bit different to trench warfare, and is taken from diary entries. Shanghai must have been such an interesting place to be at the time as it was crawling with spies, missionaries, political agitators and colonial entrepreneurs.

Museum director, Lynda Powell explores the role of the men sent to Shanghai to serve British interests.
