Forthcoming Events 2014
Tuesday 14 or Wednesday 15 January - Cancelled
"Members would have seen in the last Newsletter that Trevor Royle had yet to confirm that he would be able to talk to us in January 2014, and the disappointing news is that he will not be able to come. As a distinguished historian, he is always in great demand from the BBC, newspapers and other agencies, but his problem at present is that his publishers have brought forward the deadline for his delivery of a history of the Welsh Guards - they wish it to appear by St David's Day. As a result, he has to concentrate on that project.
Mr. Royle was very apologetic and readily agreed to be pencilled in for 2015. All being well, we shall hear him then, but in the meantime, our apologies.
Alan Ranald Macdonald.
