Recent and Future Talks and Outings

“Land Rover, a 75 year journey, from England to Zimbabwe”.

On Sunday, 26th March 2023, after the AGMs, Robin Taylor gave a short talk entitled
“Connecting Mashonaland by rail from East to West”.
Robin is a regular contributor to Heritage and has been a speaker at our meetings on numerous occasions. He has a wide interest and knowledge in many areas of our history, notably transportation and in particular that involving rail transport. Members were treated to another well presented and well researched talk.
