Thorpe Bay

Military History 1

The Military History 1 Group's interests includes the Army, Navy and Airforce. The group leader is Paul Mardon. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month.

Since our beginning our numbers have grown from the original four of us to the current ten. We encourage all members to make a presentation of, for example, a particular war or battle, on land, sea or air. The researching for the details is both interesting and fulfilling. The preparation can take time, a couple of weeks or even a month would not be unusual.

We also make visits to places of interest such as; Hendon & Duxford Aircraft Museums, the Imperial War Museum and the Royal Naval Museum at Greenwich &, on several occasions the Combined Services Museum at Maldon.

We had the usual wide range of topics including the Battle of Manzikert from 1071; the building & conflicts around the Suez canal; the war in Iraq in 1941; the Second Afghan war of 1878 & the Battle of Guagamela between Alexander the Great & Darius in 331BC.
