October 2021 news

At the next monthly meeting on Monday, 11th October, our speaker will be Simon Le Frenais, a retired GP, now indulging himself with his family, golf, gardening and travelling.  Simon will be giving a talk entitled “Queen Victoria – who do you think she was?” covering the background to her succession to the throne, and her important impact on the royal families, and subsequent history, of Europe.

With the benefit of his medical background, he will also discuss the fact that she was a carrier for the bleeding disease haemophilia, and the possible origins of her carrier status for what, at that time, was a dreadful disease.
