Guest Speaker: Graham O’Rourke, a retired history teacher, will speak on the 1st World War conscription debate and the opposing views of Prime Minister William (Billy) Hughes, and Dr Daniel Mannix, Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne. Graham last spoke to the Society in 2016 and provided a fascinating and entertaining talk on theatrical entrepreneur George S. Coppin. His talk this time should prove to be equally popular.
This meeting will be held in Meeting Room 1, Box Hill Library, 1040 Whitehorse Road Box Hill – this venue is two doors east of the Town Hall.
Date: Sunday 18 November 2018
