The eleventh annual Great War Forum conference will be at the Tally Ho in Birmingham again, on 21st March 2020, with the same format as the previous conferences - five speakers, starting at 10.30, finishing at 5.30. 


I'm delighted to announce that the speakers are -


Chris Baker - "Water across the Water - the Inundated Yser Land"


John Bourne - "Jobs for the Boys or Boys for the Jobs - the Military Secretary's Office and the BEF 1914-1918"


Richard Van Emden - "Missing - the Need for Closure after the Great War"


Steve Chambers - "Guests of the Sultan - Gallipoli POWs"


Taff Gillingham - "Mobilisation - Four Days from Peace to War"


As last year, the cost will be £32 per person, covering the conference, lunch and tea and coffee. As last year, we won't be having dinner at the Tally Ho - instead one of the restaurants near the Premier Inn on the Hagley Road.


We'll also be having our traditional get together in the Old Contemptibles pub in the centre of Birmingham on Friday evening.


As with last year's event, pals will be more than welcome to bring along books to sell, or any display material you have.


Please can you let me know you want to attend, and if so pay a deposit of £10. You can make your payment either via bank transfer, a cheque or by using the Paypal link - details of all three methods are here - 




Any questions, please let me know


Many thanks

Sadly due to the current situation and following Government advice the decision has been made to cancel this year's conference.


Delegates who were booked to attend should receive an email to that effect which will address the matter of refunds.
