About this event

Sir Nicholas Young will talk about his book 'ESCAPING WITH HIS LIFE' the result of his researches into his father's wartime experiences as an active soldier, prisoner of war and escapee and on to D-Day and beyond.

Nicholas Young’s career began in one of London’s ‘Magic Circle’ law firms as a corporate lawyer. After moving to Suffolk he discovered his vocation as a charity worker and has worked for Sue Ryder and Leonard Cheshire, as Chief Executive of Macmillan Cancer Support and as the Chief Executive of the British Red Cross before stepping down in 2014.
He was knighted in 2000 for services to cancer care and received the Queen’s Badge of Honour in 2013. In his ‘retirement’ he continues to work as a charity trustee, adviser and consultant.
Nicholas’s father never spoke of his war experiences and this book has involved many years of painstaking research based on a notebook found after Leslie Young’s death in 1986.
