Chris Hill will be giving a talk on the Ashantee War 1873-74 to the Birmingham Medal Society on the evening of the 2nd June, 2011. Those members of this Forum living within the Midlands are welcome to attend. Those wishing to do so should pm me to confirm their attendance and I will then provide them with details of the venue in my capacity as Secretary to the BMS.
Chris Hill is well known within the world of medal collecting and military research. He is extremely knowledgeable on Victorian Colonial Warfare in Africa.
I will post a brief synopsis of this talk for those unable to attend following the meeting on the 2 June.
