History

The Background Notes available through this page are in response to interest by Members in the Club's rich history and heritage, and in the remarkable people who have contributed to the Club over the years.

This increased interest is demonstrated through: the formation of the History Interest Group, and energy and enthusiasm for the projects being undertaken by this group; the curiosity and thirst for information noticed around the Club; and the various responses to our Western Front Study Tour in late 2013.

A small group of volunteers is progressively developing the range of Background Notes across the broad categories of People, Buildings, History, and Heritage. The intention is to cover a very broad number of topics with additional Background Notes to be posted to this page over time.

The Notes are designed to be 'bite-sized packets' of light reading for casual use by Members. As they are not written in a manner that is appropriate for public distribution or serious academic use, Members are requested not to distribute them outside our membership.

Despite the best efforts of History Interest Group volunteers, there are sure to be errors and omissions in the Notes, and we ask Members to please contact the Club if you can assist to identify corrections required, or to provide additional information.
