Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society

Welcome to the British Modern Military History Society.  Formed in early 2019, we organise monthly talks for anyone interested in military history over the last 200 years from Nelson’s times to the present day.   

With top quality talks given by writers, academics, former military personnel, and experts in their field with a wide variety of topics, we are based in Woodcote Village Hall RG8 0QY (near Wallingford) in South Oxfordshire.   We can accommodate up to 100 people at each talk in pleasant surroundings, offering a warm and welcoming evening out.

In 1982, the Falklands War came to an end after 74 days of bloody battles and Argentina surrendering. 255 British servicemen lost their lives and many more were injured, including blind veteran Terry. Terry was on board the HMS Antrim and, while attempting to fight a fire onboard, lost his sight when he was targeted by an airstrike.

Terry is one of many who recounted their experiences in Glimpses of War – a collection of wartime stories in aid of Blind Veterans UK. Find out more or download a free chapter about the Falklands War.
