About the lecture:
In his book, The Drum Horse in the Fountain, Joll recounts the lives of 300 Household Cavalrymen and Guardsmen who made (or lost) their names in pursuits other than soldiering. In this talk, Joll focusses on a handful of some of these men including soldiers and officers from the regiments of the Household Cavalry including a spy chief, two Oscar winners and several rogues.
