Following the AGM which is brief affair we will have a talk by Niall
Battle of Cambrai - Niall Cherry
Niall is a locally based amateur historian and regular visitor to branch meetings. Plenty of the members will already have heard talks from Niall.
The Battle of Cambrai, launched in November 1917, heralded the first time tanks were used in significant force. This was a little over a year after they had made their tentative debut at Flers on the Somme in September 1916.
The breakthrough of the first day was not capitalised on and the German counter attacks eventually regained all lost ground
