I have added four new talks for 2018. Ready for the 100th anniversary of the WW1 Armistice I have introduced “The road to the Armistice”. Continuing with the military and social history theme, I have introduced “What did you do in the War, Daddy?” with stories from WW1, WW2, the Korean War, the Falklands and Afghanistan. For rail enthusiasts, I have introduced “Railways around Chorley” and also on the local history I feature two lancashire villages of Brindle and Hoghton (near Chorley) in a new talk “Two Lancashire villages – then and now”.
Popular talks such as “A Mother’s tears” (about the First World War) and “Lakeland Lines” (about railways in the Lake District) are retained. My talk “Nowt but a Lad”, introduced in 2017, has gone down well with a wide cross section of groups.
