Harwich Society winter programme continues with talk on Churchill’s secret army in North East Essex

For many Harwich Society members the winter programme of monthly talks is the most valuable part of their Harwich Society membership.  From September through to March a monthly talk is given on the final Friday of the month with visiting speakers providing interesting and entertaining talks on a wide range of subjects.  These talks take place in the Navigator in Barrack Lane commencing at 7.30PM and are free of charge to members.

Harwich Society chairman, Colin Farnell, says, “With unlimited access to all Harwich Society visitor attractions there are many benefits to Harwich Society membership and undoubtedly the winter programme of monthly talks is one of them.  They are very entertaining and very popular.”

The October talk will take place on Friday, October 27th commencing at 7.30PM and is titled, ‘Churchill’s secret army in North East Essex’.  The speaker is Dr Hugh Frostick.  Light refreshments will be available.

“The military and naval importance of this part of the country during World War II is well documented but this talk will focus on less well known aspects of our local history,” continued Colin Farnell.  ”I’m sure we will all end the evening with far more knowledge than we began it.”
