November Meeting Report Armistice 1918 – The Road to Peace

The November meeting this year comprised of a get together at the Rugby Club, some members unfortunately apologised and still turned up for the meeting which rather confused the catering numbers, please ensure that if you do find you can attend that you let the catering officer know.

After a fine meal of steak pie chips and peas for most of us, scampi for the overflow numbers ! We settled down for an evening of fascinating facts and touching human stories.Mike Rought-Brookes read some letters from the front during the Great War which were touching and then David Henderson gave us an overview of the last two years of the Great War including battles and strategies.  David also gave us an insight into the real level of casualties both human and animal and in the impact of those left at home.  He linked this with his own family connections.
