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 Napoleonic times to the present day.
Our talks will be given by writers, academics, former military personnel, and experts and will cover a wide variety of topics and events – hopefully an interesting cocktail to encourage you to join us. Based in Woodcote Village Hall RG8 0QY (near Wallingford) in South Oxfordshire. We have a full schedule of events arranged for the coming months including talks on Taranto, the Cold War, the Falklands and the Battle of the Atlantic.
The next BMMHS meeting is on Wednesday 5th February
Our man in Hamburg - a true spy story of World War Two
A presentation given by Robert Dicketts
With Britain braced for a German invasion, MI5 recruited an ex RNAS officer, come confidence trickster, as a double agent. Codenamed Celery, this individual was sent to Lisbon with the seemingly impossible mission of persuading the Germans he was a traitor and then extract crucial secrets. Once there, the Nazis spirited him off to Germany. With his life on the line, he had to outwit his interrogators in Hamburg and Berlin before returning to Britain as, in the Nazis eyes, a German spy.
