The Surrey Branch AGM normally takes about 20 minutes and is followed by members' presentations.
This year there will be three talks:
- Alan Leakey - The Army Service Gospel
- Roger Learney - Guns / weapons focusing on snipers. Roger has an extensive collection of Great War weapons and he will bring along some of his collection to illustrate his talk.
- Philip Badham - The "Surrey in the Great War" project
Each talk will last 20-25 minutes. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and to examine Roger's weapons.
The meeting starts at 19:45 but doors open at 19:15 giving attendees the chance to browse the collection of Great War books for sale.
Members of The Western Front Association and non-members are equally welcome. We ask for a modest £3 donation on the door. This includes tea, coffee and biscuits at the break (before the Q&A session with the speaker). There is a book raffle and books about the Great War are usually available for sale.
New visitors will be assured of a welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
