Hello all,

How did this go? Any attendee care to post a synopsis?

It was excellent - almost as good as our own.

Theme 'Centenary' so picking out the key themes of each of four years.

1915 - Bob Bushaway - the real beginning of the war

1916 - Bill Philpott - very good on defining what attrition meant

1917 - Rob Thompson - lot on 'enginneering' failures at 3rd Ypres

1918 - John Bourne - reminding us that we won and that war was actually about killing.

And of course Pete Simkin linking it all together

Very good attendance.

Will be a much report in the Bulletin or Stand To no doubt.
