Our next meeting is 13 November 2014: The bombardment of Scarborough 1914


On 16 December 1914, German battlecruisers bombarded the town, causing great damage and the loss of 18 lives. Many more were injured. They then moved on to Whitby.

Local historian Keith Johnston will describe the events to us.

The meeting is at Scarborough Rugby Club.
