Across the Channel: Memoirs of Sir Donald Banks - Guernsey Literary Festival

5th May
7pm - 8pm

Sir Donald Banks (1891-1975) was a distinguished soldier and civil servant and will be the latest islander to be honoured with a blue plaque. It will be unveiled on his childhood home at 43 High Street on 8 May 2023. In the 1960s he wrote his memoirs about his remarkable career, but they remained unpublished until Steve Foote, working with Sir Donald Banks’s daughter Dawn Smith, published them in 2020. Steve will give an overview of the life of this remarkable Guernseyman, introduced by Dawn, who is travelling to the island from Canada for the unveiling of the plaque.
