November Meeting – Date Change

 Reflections on Passchendaele.
A talk by our very own David Henderson on the subject of this momentous battle that took place one hundred years ago this year. David will bring a fresh and informative view to the subject. The meeting will be held at the Rugby Club.
“Passchendaele is synonymous for mud and blood and futility. But why was it fought? And why was it fought in the location of Ypres? And what did it achieve beyond its reputation for human carnage? We will attempt to explore these themes as we examine – from all sides – the context of the penultimate year of the Great War.”
 CHANGE OF DATE
Note the date change from Thursday 9th November to Thursday 30th November. This is to avoid a clash of dates with the Chairman’s Charity Evening.
To avoid confusion all apologies so far given for 9th November are void and any member wishing to give apologies for 30th November meeting must do so again.
