AGM – Sunday 26th March 2023 (The King’s Head Aylesbury)

We return to The King’s Head, in Aylesbury for our 2023 AGM. This is our first visit since 2012 – see Patriot No. 71

The Society is pleased to welcome as our guest speaker Charles Cordell, soldier diplomat and author.  Charles will talk about the battle of Aylesbury of 1642 – he will aim to dispel some of the myths and half-truths that have attached the battle, and place it firmly in its historical context of the royalist advance on London following the battle of Edgehill.  Charles’ first book entitled “God’s Vindictive Wrath” is a fictionalised account of this period and includes a description of the battle of Aylesbury.
Further details to follow but insert the date in your diaries.
