David Henderson’s talk on the Battle of Passchendaele

The second club meeting of November took place at the Rugby Club, always a good venue the laid on a simple but satisfying meal of Steak Pie with lovely short crust pastry, chunky chips and Peas followed by a cheeseboard, all was gladly received and consumed.

The after dinner speaker was our own David Henderson who has a comprehensive knowledge of the first world war, the insight into the real conditions under which our brave boys fought and died along with the reason for the battle taking place in its location. Details of the tactics used by both side was also very interesting.

Well done David Henderson
