    Next meeting:

    "WW1 Aims and Objectives of the Participants"
    Tuesday 10th Sept 2018 at 7.30pm
    Richard Abbot will address the question of “Why did Britain get involved in a continental European war that on the face of it did not affect its interests as a maritime power?”
    He will do this by considering Britain’s historic foreign policy objective of maintaining the balance of power in Europe in the light of the war aims of the main belligerents and and reviewing the eventual outcome through the Versailles Treaty.
    Admission £4 (includes tea and coffee)"

    "The Royal British Legion"

    Tuesday 8th Oct 2018 at 7.30pm


    Poppies and elderly gentlemen in blazers rattling tins or the Festival of Remembrance on telly & the Memorial services at the Cenotaph in London and at local memorials around the country is as far as most people think when considering the Royal British Legion.
    Whilst these are vital in helping raise both awareness and funds to support the work of the Legion, the reality is far wider. As the country begins to ready itself for “Poppy Week” and Remembrance Sunday (and all that entails), Scott Pringle (Chairman of the Ashton Branch of the RBL) and David Brown (Armed Forces Covenant Officer at Tameside Council) will be looking at what goes on “behind the scenes” and the wider ways in which the RBL does it’s (largely unseen) work.

    Admission £4 (includes tea and coffee)
