"Helping us all through the Great Isolation"


Operation Bookworm

With all BMMHS talks cancelled for the summer and hoping to resume in September, we have decided to put the ample time we all have our hands at present  to produce a book with the main content being from articles, memories, anecdotes of military experiences (serving or civilian) of our members or their family members and friends.    

We will also look to include articles and book excerpts from various authors and historians. The working title at the moment is ‘Glimpses of War’.  All the net profits will be donated to the Blind Veterans UK charity.  

Thank you for your articles & we will keep you updated on the books progress. Any questions please contact us on info@bmmhs.org
