Actor and historian John Nettles believes that the Occupation diaries of the Rev. Douglas Ord are ‘gold dust to the historian’.
These amazing diaries, edited by John Nettles, will be published later this year by Blue Ormer Publishing and John will be talking about them at Beau Sejour on 4 November as a special Guernsey Literary Festival event, sponsored by Investec.
John Nettles, star of the popular TV series Bergerac and Midsomer Murders has long been fascinated by the history of the Channel Islands and in particular the German Occupation. He came across Ord's diaries while carrying out research for his three-hour documentary The Channel Islands at War and for his book Jewels and Jackboots.
