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 History of Firearms, The Afghan Wars, The Indian Mutiny, The Battle of Gettysburg (US Civil War), The Spanish Civil War, The Nazi War Economy, The Battle of the Atlantic (World War 2) and Operation Market Garden (Arnhem, 1944).

Presenters will include Geoff Cosson, John Drew, Mike Groves, Kevin McAnallen, Rod McGregor, Wally Oppenheim, David Richards and Simon Welch.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month (except January) at Droushia Heights Hotel from 10.00-Noon.
