Naval Historical Society of Australia – Victoria Chapter
Cordially invites you to
Our Monthly Meeting at 1900 on Monday 22 August 2022
At Waverley RSL – Sunset Room
161 Coleman Parade, Glen Waverley
“Show & Tell”
This “Show & Tell” evening breaks with our normal monthly meeting practice of listening to a Guest Speaker. It provides an opportunity for attendees to bring along items which they consider of likely interest to others in our Chapter, and to describe their relevance in just a few minutes.
In effect this provides a dozen or more Guest Speakers, each presenting a short vignette. There are no limits to what members can offer to the evening, with the only constraint being a limit of five minutes in which to convey their message
So rummage around in those old cupboards, sea chests, photo albums and sock drawers – or even song books – to help bring this evening alive.
Past events of this nature have proven to be most entertaining, with a smattering of humorous topics among others of a more serious nature. Our President will do his best to maintain “good order and discipline” by running the proceedings. It would be helpful if those intending to speak would advise him by email beforehand – at email@example.com.
As noted in our last “Three Headed Dog” newsletter, the evening will include a short ceremony to hand over the prize-winner’s Belt awarded to Stoker Leonard “Len” Stanley Hill who won the Heavyweight Division of the Mediterranean Fleet Championships in 1936. This encased belt will be on display before being presented to his son for future safe keeping in the family.
Members and Guests are most welcome
A relaxing meal and drink beforehand in the RSL’s delightful Warramunga Room is always a pleasant prelude to the 1900 meeting
