Following the AGM a presentation will be given by Dudley Giles on `British League of Help`
Nearly 90 towns, cities, and organisations in the UK, Australia, Canada and Mauritius signed up in the period 1920-1922 to 'adopt' a village, town or city in the Devastated Zone of France. Some of these adoptions lasted only a few years, some (like Sheffield's adoption of Bapaume, Serre and Puisieux) survived until after WW2
This Month's presenter, Dudley Giles
Dudley Giles graduated with a degree in Law from the University of Leeds in 1979 and immediately joined the British Army 'for 3 years to have some fun'. (In fact he stayed for 33 years because he continued to have fun.) He retired in 2012 and went on to serve for a number of years as the CEO of the British Horological Institute, retiring again in 2017.
