Dear Black Watch Association members,

There are also details of the Winter festival which is this Saturday coming.


Lecture | 1916 - The Turning Point?
Thursday, 8th December 2016
6:30pm ó 8:00pm

After a disastrous campaign in 1915, Britain was looking for success in 1916 - but more disappointments followed on sea and land across the globe. Can the year that contained Jutland, the Somme, the Easter Rising and the death of Lord Kitchener be considered a turning point? This talk will look at the campaigns and their lessons with some local perspectives and suggest an answer.
Mike Taylor is a member of the Tayside Branch of the Western Front Association. The Western Front Association was formed in 1980 to maintain interest in the First World War (1914-1918).
