for new speakers so please let us know if you know
of somebody you could recommend.

APRIL11th

A brief history of Venice and glimpses of the
lesser known parts of the city and lagoon.

FEBRUARY 14th
IMOGEN CORREGAN: Joan of Arc

One of the best known female figures in history but
what is fact and what is fiction? Love her or loathe her?
Did she actually lead an army? She certainly inspired one
and was an inspirational and extraordinary young woman.

A look at some of the infamous Art Forgers
and the shady world they inhabited.

MAY 9th
LEN HOWELL:  Rehearsing Armageddon.

This talk deals with the lead up to the 1962 NATO exercise
which involved Dover Castle. Not a roaring success and
very serious subject but not without many amusing,
chaotic aspects to the exercise itself.

JUNE 13th
GUY BARTLETT: The History of the Red Arrows

 We all know them, we all love them and these highly-qualified
young pilots never fail to fill our hearts with pride when
we watch their amazing feats of airmanship.
This is their story.
