October 2021 Talk

Dear Members and Friends,
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our speaker for October is unable to join us.
Nick Saunders and Chris Hobby have kindly agreed to step into her place and I attach the poster for the talk so that you can see the details.
I will send the Zoom link the day before for those members who wish to see it at home.
The title of the talk is The Indian Army presence in the New Forest in WW1


Nick says: 
This talk will review the Indian army presence in the New Forest in WW1 from the artillery camp at Ashurst through to the hospital complex at Brockenhurst and the convalescent depots and Barton on Sea and Milford. Why were Indian soldiers posted to the New Forest in WW1? What impact did their arrival have on the local community? Did the Indian soldiers feel welcomed here? Were they well looked after or poorly treated? What did the Indian soldiers have to say about their stay in the Forest? What can be seen today to remind us of the Indian presence here in WW1? All will be revealed during the talk.  

Historic tour of Christchurch Priory monastic grounds.

The next external tour of Christchurch Priory and monastic grounds will take place on Thursday 14 October at 2.30pm. This is the last tour of the season, so if you are interested in finding out more about this ancient Priory, its history, architecture and lovely setting, then this is for you.

The tour lasts approximately 1 ¼ hours, taking visitors to areas that the public does not normally have access to, as well as including the new gargoyles. Tickets are £6, and can be booked via the Priory gift shop (01202 485804). Please book in advance; payment can be made on the day.

I attach the details of our next meeting, to be held on Zoom on 27th November 2020 at 7.15.

I will send the Zoom link on the morning of the meeting to all paid-up members of LDHS.

This month we are arranging for non-members to be able to join us for
a modest £5.

If you wish to attend a Meeting as a non-member please send an email to that effect to events@ladhs.co.uk

I will then reply to your email with bank transfer details for you to transfer your £5 (use your name as Reference).

Please email me as soon as you have transferred the money (this means that I do not have to keep checking the bank account!)

Once I know that the £5 has been transferred I can email you the necessary link / Meeting ID / Passcode on the morning of the meeting.

Please, do not leave this until the last minute!!!
