Please see "Venue" for details of the times and where we meet.
We are happy to have visitors at any of our meetings.
ALL face to face meetings until at least January 2021 have been cancelled due to the continuing precautions against the Covid-19 spread. We are planning to use Zoom to have branch meetings on the internet. Our next Zoom meeting will be:
Trevor started off his professional life as a research chemist and ended up as a lawyer, working in major London law firms. After moving to Wales, he taught at the Law College in Christleton, near Chester, teaching students for the Law Society’s solicitor exams. He is editor of the North Wales WFA branch newsletter, and runs websites for both North Wales WFA and for our branch.
His interest in WWI stems from his grandfather being fatally wounded serving with the 36th Ulster Division at the Battle of the Somme. He has been trying to understand WWI for the last 30 years, more recently including the often-overlooked Irish dimension. His only claim to history academia is having a school friend who ended up as a history professor!
John will talk about the twelve names on the war memorial in Heswall Methodist church, and what recent research was able to undercover about them and their families for the centenary Remembrance Day service in 2018.
