Meeting Programme

Before WWII District meetings, Conventionettes and Hamfests were all held in hotels and involved a 5 course meal. These programs were signed by many of those present. Some photographs of events and detailed scans of the programmes are available by clicking this paragraph.

Post WWII Activities

There were 18 members present at the first meeting after the war and numbers rose steadily during the first year to around 36. In these early days meetings seem to have taken place in members homes. Each meeting included a talk, either by a member or by a visitor. During the first year the titles included :-
