Our varied programme of themes regarding Transport continued in the summer with a highly successful visit to ss Great Britain in May, and a wonderful presentation by our old friend Bill King about the World War II iconic group of brave and adventurous fliers, many of them ladies, who together were known as the ATA or Air Transport Auxiliary. The amazing feats they achieved and the tales they had to tell are part of history now, and Bill’s presentation about them is well worthy of praise. We shall look forward to having a return visit from him on a different topic before long,
The new “term” for the Transport History Group opened with a presentation from one of our members, Peter Jackson, who spoke of the vehicles he has owned, driven or ridden. This encouraged a great deal of nostalgia.
If anyone, a member of this Group or not, has any subject relating to Transport which they would like to tell us about, it would be most warmly received.
Other topics coming up in the future are helicopters, town signs and a history of the AA.
Our speaker on 23rd October 2019 was Commodore Ian Gibb, who has entertained the U3A Social Meetings before. He gave a wide ranging presentation all about Maritime Trade, which was very interesting, informative – and amusing!
