Colonel John Hughes-Wilson Donates Original Manuscript

Colonel John Hughes-Wilson, a notable author who worked for British Intelligence through a long military career, visited our campus on Tuesday.  He spoke with Sixth Form students on how the First World War advanced technologies that we use today, and spoke briefly about the Ottoman Empire.  Students were intrigued and shared stories they heard from their grandparents, and great-grandparents.  As an author of 20 books on intelligence history, and military history, Colonel John Hughes-Wilson has also generously donated original manuscripts of his works to add to our ever-growing library.  We have formed the Hughes-Wilson Collection which we will hold open to scholars to access on these themes.  It is a distinct honour to have such a prestigious, and original scholarly collection in the ESK library.
