Talk one done!

I had the pleasure today of giving a lecture to the Portsmouth University of the 3rd Age Local History Group.

This was the first outing for my ‘what my family did during the war’ talk, and apart from a few technical glitches everything went very well. As usual they were very surprised to see someone my age turn up!

I was interested to meet a gentleman who served with the 4th Battalion of the Dorsetshire Regiment in the closing stages of Market Garden, another chap who served in the Royal Artillery and one lady who lost two brothers in the war in an air crash.

Sometimes when you spend a long time researching something you can get quite blase about it, and its only when you tell other people about it, and you can hear the gasps and sense the reactions that you realise how incredible some stories are. Thats one of the reasons I find going out and giving talks a great reality check.

My next talk is at the D-Day Museum in Southsea on Thursday 18 February, kick off at 7.30pm. Its primarily for members of the Portsmouth Museums and Records Society, although guests are welcome at £2 each!

Or alternatively if anyone would like to book me to give a talk, or knows of a group that might like to have me, feel free to get in touch!
