Society Outing to Winchester and The Gurkha Museum
Sep 22 all-day
The Gurkha Museum
The Gurkha Museum

In the May Newsletter we gave details of a possible outing to The Gurkha Museum in Winchester. At that time we were not sure if it would be possible to arrange an outing but asked members to let us know whether they would in principle be interested in joining. 15 responded in the affirmative. We have decided that it would now be possible for us to go ahead with the trip.

Further details have been circulated to members by email.
