Informal Meeting - My Military Ancestor

December 13

Roger Cansdale - Heroes and Villains of the Basingstoke Canal
In the canal's 200+ year history, there have been many occasions when it might have been abandoned. The fact that most of it still survives is due to a relatively small number of people who popped up at critical moments. Some did what they did for perfectly respectable reasons, either commercial or altruistic, but the motives of others were at best self-interest and at worst fraudulent and criminal; several ended up in prison. However, without them all, the canal would not exist today.

David Turner - Forgotten Staff - Victorian and Edwardian Railwaywomen
Our histories of the Victorian and Edwardian railways usually focus on the activities and lives of male workers. This talk describes the jobs railwaywomen did on the railway before 1914, the challenges they faced when working in a male-dominated environment, and how their pay and employment prospects were shaped by the expectations of women's position in society generally.
