Tom Hiett


For those who didn’t attend the last meeting we have some sad news of the passing of one of our founder members Tom Hiett. Up until a couple of years ago, before ill health stopped him, he regularly attended our monthly meetings, and was a good supporter of our various social events. He was a very active member, serving the society as committee member, chairman and editor of our quarterly news sheet.

It is probably the last one of these, as editor, for a long time, that most members would remember him. He would produce these on his old typewriter, always ending on a comical note.


His funeral is on Monday 7th November, 11:00am at St Andrews Church, Hamble

Close to the Enemy


Thursday 10th November




1 of 7 (Drama)


Close To The Enemy follows intelligence officer Captain Callum Ferguson (Sturgess), whose last task for the Army is to ensure that a captured German scientist, Dieter (Diehl), starts working for the British RAF on urgently developing the jet engine. With the background of the emerging Cold War, it is clear to all that it's crucial for British national security that cutting-edge technology is made available to the armed forces as quickly as possible.
