Following on from the successful event in 2017, we are returning to Winchester for a conference that covers a range of topics; subjects not often covered elsewhere, following which we will have a guided tour of one of the other museums situated in the Peninsula Barracks. If you are wondering what the theme is; it is the Duke of Wellington, the KGL who played a major role in his campaigns, and a war prison where the KGL extensively recruited.

Plus a look at his cavalry.
