Anniversaries of 2021

Events that we will be commemorating this year

What is the story?

Every day there will be many anniversaries.  We all have a birthday after all.  On some days we will be commemorating major events; others will just happen to be the anniversary of something more mundane (apart from your birthday of course).

This talk is a continuation of my annual series of “anniversaries” talks, which has been going since 2014.

We’ve now reached 2021, so these are the stories behind an eclectic selection of historical events that took place in the years ending in “21” – 1921, 1821, 1721 etc.

We have enjoyed several of Graham’s talks and they have always been well presented, interesting and entertaining.

Mollie Dunning

Maidenhead Townswomen's Guild

We have had some very interesting talks from Graham. He really enjoys his subjects and passes his interest and knowledge on to his audiences. Our members certainly look forward to the meetings when Graham is giving a talk.

Alan Copeland

Whitchurch Camera Club

Graham is a regular visitor to our meetings and his talks are always very popular. He displays a great depth of knowledge of his subject, is very professional and informative in his delivery and his talks are illustrated with superb photography.

Don’t think he could improve! Excellent in all respects.
