‘Uncle Arthur Bishop‘ and the redoubtable Winnington-Ingram family during WWI

Thursday 11 April 2019, from 18.00

The Friends of Fulham Palace are delighted to host a talk given by author Vee Walker, the great-great-niece of Arthur Foley Winnington-Ingram based upon the intriguing and true story of her grandparents Tom and Evie Winnington-Ingram, as told in her debut novel Major Tom’s War. Vee’s great-great-uncle Arthur Foley Winnington-Ingram was the Bishop who saw London through the First World War and right up to the dawn of the second.

Vee’s grandmother Evie Winnington-Ingram was a frequent guest at Fulham Palace as were the author’s mother and aunt, Penelope and Elizabeth Westmacott. Her book weaves together four different perspectives on the First World War: those of Tom and Evie, of Lochdubh, Tom’s nemesis, and of Gaston Derome, the mayor of a small French town on the Belgian border. How these stories interconnect across five years of conflict is fascinating and the story is firmly rooted in Vee’s family archives. Vee’s grandfather, the eponymous Tom, was born in India and fought as an Indian Army Cavalry Officer alongside Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims on the Western Front.

Reviews have already compared Major Tom’s War with Vera Brittain’s Testament of Youth in its scope and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient in style – but unusually, this is a war story with which comes close to having a happy ending!
