posted 12 Feb 2013, 18:05 by John Leighton   [ updated 5 Mar 2013, 19:21 ]

The February meeting will take place at the Police Officers Club on Thursday 28th when Jeremy Stone and Peter Makant will give a presentation on the Falklands conflict, both presenters are veterans of the conflict.  More details to follow, but please mark your diaries for now.


Also being planned is another two day excursion to the Bogue Forts in the Pearl River Delta, guided by Martin Heyes on the weekend of 16th/17th March. These forts were used by the Chinese to guard Canton and engaged the Royal Navy during the Opium Wars. Our last visit was successfully held in 2009 and this one will basically be a repeat  with some modifications made in light of our experience in 2009. interested parties please contact the Secretary.

UPDATE: Owing to unforseen circumstances, this talk was postponed. The February gathering went ahead as a 'members own' affair.
