“Traitor King: The Scandalous Exile of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor” by Andrew Lownie

November 9 @ 19:00 - 21:00

An 2022-23 Historical Association event

This is the story of a Royal shut out by his family and forced into exile; of the Nazi attempts to recruit the Duke to their cause, and of why the Duke, as Governor of the Bahamas, tried to shut down the investigation of the murder of a close friend. It is a story of a couple obsessed with their status, financially exploiting their position and manipulating the media to portray themselves as victims.

HA meetings will be in the Birchall Hall, Queen’s College, Taunton, by kind permission of the Headmaster, Mr Julian Noad.

The lectures begin at 7.30pm (door open at 7.00 pm) and will finish at about 8.45pm.

Entry fee – £2 per lecture (free to students)

GRADING OF WALKS

Events are graded from 1-4 in difficulty. The grading is found in the event description in the calendar on this page. Keep in mind that a change in weather conditions can make a walk more difficult than anticipated. All walks and activities demand a basic level of fitness, suitable footwear and waterproof clothing.

1 Easy – generally even ground with a few gentle slopes; no special fitness needed.  Comfortable footwear required.

2 Moderate – for reasonably fit people, may include unsurfaced rural paths and tracks, moderate slopes, uneven surfaces, steps and stiles. Walking shoes/boots required.

3 Strenuous – for fit, experienced walkers, will include hills, uneven surfaces, tracks and may include muddy terrain. Walking boots and waterproof clothing are essential.

4 Confined spaces – including caves and attics. Locations may be dusty, slippery and dark.

Activity leaders carry out a risk assessment beforehand. Participants are required to provide emergency contact details before taking part in an activity – this information is destroyed by the group leader after the activity has taken place.
