Peace Celebrations, Indian Troops Marching Down Whitehall

'Peace Celebrations, Indian Troops Marching Down Whitehall' by Dora Meeson, 1919 (National Army Museum)

Tuesday 9th April 2019

SAHR's 2019 Annual Member's Meeting (which will include the Society's AGM) will take place on Tuesday 9 April at the National Army Museum.  

We are delighted to announce that the lecture will be delivered by Dr. Rory Muir, an expert on the Napoleonic Wars and particularly on the Duke of Wellington.  The second volume of his acclaimed biography of Wellington was awarded the Templer Medal in 2015. 

Dr. Muir will speak on 'The Duke of Wellington and the British Army', looking at the task Wellington faced, the methods he used to bring the army to its high state during the Peninsular War, and his influence on the army in the decades after Waterloo.  He will also consider Wellington's image as the archetypal British soldier, and his connections to the wider world of politics and diplomacy.

The programme for the day will be:

5pm AGM

6pm Lecture - 'The Duke of Wellington and the British Army'

7pm Awards Ceremony - Templer Medal, Research Grants, Essays Prizes

8pm Reception
