Group report

This is an article published in the Spring 2017 edition of the Hayling Island U3A newsletter...

In this group we each take it in turn to research an historical subject of our choice; and then give a short talk on it to the rest of the group.

Subjects we have covered over the last few months are:

  • The life of Charles Darwin
  • The Battle of Jutland in WW1
  • The life of Leon Trotsky
  • The Battle of the Atlantic in WW2
  • The Drovers of Wales and their connection with Lloyds Bank
  • The life of Benjamin Franklin
  • Admiral Collingwood before and after Trafalgar
  • Prisoner of War escapes in WW2
  • Naval ratings part in Scott's Antarctic expeditions

We meet on the second Friday of each month from 10am till noon.

We have a vacancy for a couple of new members. If you are interested please contact me.
