April meeting changes

Out April General Meeting will be on the 2nd Saturday this month because of Easter.

The speaker named on our website, David Deasey is unable to make it.

So, on Saturday 12 April, Tony Lanarch-Jones will be talking to us about Australia and the Boer War.
Tony is the National Secretary of the National Boer War Memorial Association.

Over 16,000 troops were engaged in the Australian contingents and another 7,000 Australians fought in other colonial and irregular units. It is estimated that 1,000 Australians lost their lives in this war.

The meeting will be held in the Gordon Library Meeting room 1, next to our research rooms from 2pm.
All are welcome and the meeting will be followed by afternoon tea.
