"An exhibition of local Second World War photographs, never seen before, is being put on by Battle Museum of Local History and the Battle Photographic Society. Terence Page, Marston Hart and Peter Greene scanned the images and made some improvements. Richard Tickner kindly made all the prints to a high standard. The exhibition will begin on 1 August in Battle Library and last until 27 September. The photos are the ones that there was no room to include in the best-selling book Battle at War, still available from Rother Books in the High Street. Visitors will be able to leave messages and information, which the Museum will follow up. The exhibition opening hours are: Tuesday 10-4; Wednesday 10-1; Thursday 11-6; Friday/Saturday 10-5.

Another successful cooperation with Battle Museum after our Battle 'Then' and 'Now' exhibition in 2015 to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of our Society".

The Royal Academy of Arts in London is having a weekend-long lecture series coming up that we thought might be of interest to your society. The course is titled A Concise History of Photography and explores the history of the medium and how our preconceptions of what photography is and can be have changed over time. The course is led by Mark Rawlinson, Associate Professor in the History of Art at the University of Nottingham.
