Group Leader: Roy Evans
We now have an established Military History Group which has been running since May 2016.
We have had a range of excellent speakers, who have covered the Life and Times of Napoleon; Aircraft Production in Lincoln during the First World War; Events of June 14th 1916 and the Events leading upto ‘D’ Day, June 6th 1944.
Other speakers have discussed the Anglo Saxons, Bag Pipes and Hitler’s Vengeance Weapons, the V1, 2, 3 and 4.
In April 2017, thirty of our group went to France. A report of our trip is available by clicking HERE.
