-At our meeing in October we very much enjoyed an extremely interesting and well presented talk by Roy Vernon on the bombing of Guernica, titled, Why! Guernica. Roy’s talk complemented Anne (Heyes) excellent talk given in September on the evacuation of the Basque children from Bilbao to the UK in 1937 on the ship the Habana. We were also lucky enough to have two members of the history group whose families were evacuated to the UK, Mark (Dewey’s) family were evacuated in 1937 on the Habana and Jan’s (Urquijo) father was evacuated on a ship which left in 1939. Both Jan and Mark gave a first hand account of their relatives experiences. See photographs.
