Military History Group

This group is based on the experience of the Group Leader as a member of a successful Military History group in another city. It publishes, at the beginning of each year, a program of ten monthly talks to cover September to June. There are no talks in July and August.

Although sometimes we have outside speakers, experience shows that group members often have life experience or interests that make for an interesting talk. Not everyone is comfortable with public speaking so there is no pressure whatsoever to contribute other than your attendance!

The subject matter is up to the volunteer speaker within the broad spectrum of military history but experience shows that most are located in the 20th Century. (One exception was Hannibal and his elephants over the Alps!)

The meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month in the Club room of Cheltenham Bowling Club in Suffolk Square  for approximately two hours starting at 10am.

To participate you must be a fully paid up member of Cheltenham U3A but you can come to your first meeting without formality to see if it suits you. If already a member of U3A, send your request and membership number to [email protected]. Other applicants should join U3A through its website then submit your membership number to me at [email protected].

Even if you are already a member of another group, you are welcome to come and join us.

Group Leader: Sally Ferrers
