The next meeting of the Storytellers which will be on Tuesday 16th April commencing at 7:30pm.
In keeping with previous years the April meeting will have an ANZAC DAY theme.
Sandy Longworth will be our ‘Storyteller’ and will talk about:
- the Turkey and Ottoman Empire leading up to the Gallipoli Campaign
- the Gallipoli Campaign, mostly narrative slides
- Sandy’s ‘hero’, his father Roley, and some of his stories (he did not speak about it much, as it was very tough, but wrote a few very informative letters which were not subject to censors when he was in hospital in Cairo)
- briefly tracing his father’s life connected with Military and medicine. Roley’s life in a sense was made by WWI . He remained a devoted ‘Digger’ and was the ‘Diggers’ doctor for both WWI and WWII diggers.
The BBC’s one and only A Cappella choir will join in the evening’s fun with a number of songs familiar to everyone.
No tickets required this time!!
If the weather is good then come for a byo drink, feed and chat beforehand, usually starting at 6pm. All members and friends are welcome.
