We look at different wars and Battles and their impact on society.  Each month we have a different speaker.

Talks are illustrated with PowerPoint presentations. A lively presentation is guaranteed. Talks are stand-alone, so members can join at any point. No prior knowledge is required. We currently have more than 60 members, but there is no limit on numbers.


We have a varied programme for the year ahead, including talks, videos and discussions led by a variety of members.

The topics to be covered include: The Life of Hannibal, The castles of Cyprus, The Nazi War Economy, The Battle of the Atlantic (World War 2) and Operation Sealion, Hitler’s abortive plan to invade Britain.

Presenters will include Geoff Cosson, John Drew, Kevin McAnallen, Rod McGregor, and David Richards.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month (except July and August) at the Coral Star Restaurant from 10.00 am - Noon.

New members are always welcome. If you think you might be interested in any of the talks (you are free to pick and choose the topics that interest you), then please email me at
