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.

“He’s a Lumberjack and he’s Okay…” The Canadian Corps 1914-1917

Rob Thompson

An examination challenging the myth of the Canadian Corps 1914-1917, and which explains the often difficult and disappointing reality of its development. By placing the corps within its proper historical context, a more balanced and fuller understanding of its development and eventual status as ‘Shock Army of the British Empire’ is achieved.

Calling anyone who was involved in the Falklands War…

THE FALKLANDS CONFLICT, APRIL - JUNE 1982 (FKD 2049) Naval Party 8901, the Royal Marine garrison of the Falkland Islands evicted by the Argentine invaders, with the Falkland Islands flag outside Government House, Port Stanley, after the Argentine surrender.

To mark the 40th anniversary next year, the British Modern Military History Society is compiling a book of memories and stories of those who served in the Falklands. The stories can be of any role, any of the services, civilians, Falkland Islanders, those based in UK or the families of those who served.  We would also be interested in any stories from the Argentine perspective too.

All profits will go to the charity Blind Veterans UK #blindveteransuk   #glimpsesofwar

If you have a story to tell – whether a short anecdote or a longer piece – then please get in touch andy.cockeram@bmmhs.org
