THE HARRY MATTHEWS MEMORIAL LECTURE
This year's Harry Matthews Memorial Lecture was given by Roy Johnstone who spoke on The Assassination of John F. Kennedy. He re-examined the evidence and presented this thought-provoking lecture on the 54th anniversary of the events.
David Brown congratulated Roy on his enlightening and engrossing talk. This talk was especially enlightening to people who were not old enough to remember the circumstances surrounding this event.
Marion McLean congratulates Ian Garden who recently gave us a fascinating lecture entitlted The Third Reich's Cellular War.
Alan J Masson gave a very interesting lecture in September entitled From Holyrood to Holywood.
