Roller and Burberry – 11 November 2024

A TADS talk by Ian Burn (TADS Project Group)

Monday 11th November 2024; 8.00 pm at Heath End Village Hall, Heath End Road, Baughurst, RG26 5LU

Multi-talented Tadley resident Major George C Roller (1856-1941) was an artist, a soldier who served in both the Boer War and World War I, a steeplechase rider, a London Magistrate, and a Governor of London Hospitals and the Royal Berkshire Hospital. For much of his life George lived in Tadley: at The Wilderness (now Tadley Court School) and The Cottage (now Rollers). Our talk will explore the close links the Roller family had with local outfitters, Burberry, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
