The Programme Convenor, Mr. C. H. Cohen, reports that during 1969 commencing January, a series of lectures will be conducted by the Society dealing with various aspects of the American Civil War.
The lectures will he given by Colonel K. P. Pitts, Army Attache', Embassy of the United States of America, Pretoria, and will be introduced by Advocate M. W. Friedman, both speakers having studied the period in detail.
Colonel Pitts lectured at the United States Military Academy, Westpoint, and is a Second World War veteran, having served with the 106th Infantry Division (of Battle of the Bulge fame) in Europe. He has done a series of tours of duty in the service of the United States Diplomatic Corps and is at present doing duty in the Republic.
Members need no introduction to Advocate Friedman other than to be reminded of his lecture in January of this year entitled "An introduction to 19th Century Military History" which must certainly rank as one of the finest lectures delivered to the Society in the Series.
Members will be notified of dates and topics at a later stage.
In addition, attempts are being made to arrange a series of lectures dealing with various aspects of unconventional warfare, with particular reference to its bearing on South Africa.
