We meet at 6.30pm at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) on the second Thursday of each month. We do not meet however in January, July, August (this year) or December.

Members of The Western Front Association and non-members are equally welcome.

We ask for a modest optional £4 donation on the door. Any new visitors will be assured of a welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
