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.
COVID-19 has put the meetings in the hall on hold for the time being. We are looking to resume when guidelines permit and it is safe to do so. In the meantime twice monthly Zoom Talks are currently scheduled during 2021.
Our schedule of monthly meetings and talks range from El Alamein, the Battle of Britain, the Suez crisis and much more – something to appeal to everyone. Check out the full programme and talk details on the website or our Facebook pages.
BMMHS History Talks via Zoom
We shall continue a monthly Zoom talk and look to resume live meetings as soon as we can and it is deemed safe to do so. However with the uncertainty over COVID and the restrictions, the meetings we have organised may revert to Zoom talks. Check out the schedule of events for the exciting list of talks and meetings for the 2021 season. Please continue to check this website as events may change at short notice.

Glimpses of War
A compilation of military stories and eyewitness accounts to raise funds for Blind Veterans UK
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.
