National Service: The Call Up and Military Intelligence, a Personal Story

Roger Gardner

Roger_Insignia
Any boy reaching the age of 18 between 1947 and 1962 had to undertake full time National Service in one of the armed forces. Roger’s talk is a personal account of his unusual, and fortunate, experience when called up in 1951 to serve in the army for two years.

After demobilisation, Roger had no further contact with Military Intelligence but became a Designer and Consultant in the Lighting Industry.

Mon Mar 20thPoetryChinese Poetry

An ancient tradition of poetry that reflects the rise and fall of empires, friendship and love, the scourge of office work/paperwork, a fascination with nature and a longing for an ancestral home. But many of the poems seem very modern to us now. We will be looking at a small selection of classical chinese poems from the last three thousand years.
