Forthcoming Talks

Date Title Notes
21st May 2019 Unemployment: I Did it My Way Club member Chris Shepley will relate the story of his somewhat wayward career leading inevitably to self employment.
4th June 2019 Sir Maurice Oldfield Our speaker will be Martin Pearce, a local author, who will talk about the life and times of his Uncle, Sir Maurice Oldfield, who worked his way to become Chief of our Secret Intelligence Service and was a leading figure in the creation of MI6.
18th June 2019 8East - If the Cold War had become Hot This talk by Club member Malcolm Young will be a summary of the procedures by which the RAF would have reacted to the commencement of hostilities during the Cold War. It is pertinent from an historical perspective but also, given the current cooling of east west relations and Putin’s provocations, we may need to be prepared for something similar.
