'Following the continued success of the London meeting talks, CCI will be hosting a further series of presentations in 2012, aboard HMS President, previously known in WW1 as HMS Saxifrage. Launched in 1918 as an Anchusa Class corvette, she was equipped as a "Q" Ship! It's a fantastic venue for meetings - a wonderful piece of history in its own right. The ship is moored on the Thames Victoria Embankment in Central London, opposite the OXO Tower.'
'Meetings are held once a month in London, on the second Saturday of each month (except August) ... and meetings begin at 2.00 pm. At least one all-day meeting is normally held and additional meetings are usually held in provincial centres.'

Paddy Griffith Memorial Lecture
South Manchester Tactical Society
'Meets on the first Saturday afternoon of each month ... at 2.30 pm ... Our meetings are both friendly and highly informative - and are conducted with the absolute minimum of formality. Usually, each meeting has a theme; members bring along items for discussion, and often go away having acquired more knowledge of the subject than they arrived with! Occasionally, we will invite a guest speaker, and we have even been known to venture out bravely into the fresh air to visit a site of historic interest, or a regimental museum.' However, unfortunately, the Website of the Society seems to have disappeared: I do not know whether the Society has also ceased operation ...
>>> Talks in the Museum
'Each year the Museum hosts a series of talks, on a range of subjects, often in partnership with other bodies. Each of our talks highlight a lesser-known aspect of our Regimental story. Some of these talks compliment special exhibitions in the Museum, new publications or events and activities we are involved with.'
'Hear guest speakers examine a wealth of enthralling topics at our free lunchtime lectures, which take place at 12.30 pm every Thursday. Occasionally there are unavoidable changes to the programme. Visitors interested in attending a particular lecture are advised to telephone ... on the day ... Admission is free and many lectures are followed by a book signing in the Museum Shop.'
