Wednesday 17 July 2024

Subject: Our first 'Show and Tell' of the year.

Speaker: [None]
For those unfamiliar with the concept, it really is very simple. We arrange tables and chairs in a hollow square or U shape. For those who have some military artefacts at home (medals, documents, uniform items, anything), please bring one or more items in and talk about them in a few minutes. For those without such items, do still come along and enjoy the evening.

Wednesday 21 August 2024

Subject: A medical officer's journals from Operation CORPORATE

Speaker: Andy Meredith
A talk by Andy Meredith, a retired ENT consultant and Surg Cdr RN, with a MA from Portsmouth in Naval History. Andy writes: "Some of you will be aware of medical support to the armed forces during Operation CORPORATE through the book 'The Red and Green Life Machine' by Surg Cdr Rick Jolly, but few will know much about the contribution of the Medical Officers in frigates and destroyers. These relatively junior medical officers and their staff of medical branch ratings dealt with a range of injuries and conditions in difficult circumstances. Reading their Medical Officers' Journals (normally restricted for 100 years but made available in redacted form) provides insight into their experiences."
