Archived Stories At the Meeting in May there was an ongoing display of old local photographs on a digital photo frame............ The evening's main topic was militaria. Donald Richards who lives in Sidmouth was in the Devon and Dorsets Regiment and then for many years in the Territorial Army. He had brought with him a vast array of regimental hats, caps and berets. He is an avid collector of anything to do with the Military but 'hats' was his specialist subject this evening. There were examples from various countries including Russia, Afghanistan, Germany and Switzerland.

The next speaker will be Dr John Griffin talking about William Pook Collier.  This will be at 7.30pm in the Church Room on Thursday July 9th.
