In 1975, the Guards Club merged with them and brought some fine military pictures and silver(including a beautiful cadelabra).Successive committees have organised the refurbishment and redecoration of the Club House which is now a wonderful building and perfect setting for our talk to take place.Edward Cholmondeley-Clarke is a graduate of the Université de Grenoble and Trinity College Dublin.Being educated in three countries and working in others has given him a very personal and multi-facetted perspective on history.This talk takes us from 1803 and through to 1814, to the time after the Treaty of Paris and the release of prisoners.
