Sir Stephen Sedley, Honorary Fellow of Mansfield College and retired Lord Justice of Appeal, who became interested in British trench songs in the 1960s and recorded recollections of veterans. With vocals by Les Green, Professor of Law at Oxford, and accompaniment by Mansfield alumnus Dick Wolff (of Three Pressed Men), he will discuss the remarkable body of spontaneous, insubordinate and humorous song with which the troops faced hardship and death.
