Monthly Meeting, Martlesham Heath Aviation Society
7.30pm
Martlesham Heath Community Centre, Felixstowe Road, Martlesham Heath, IP12 4PB
Contact Patrols Air Support for the Infantry in The Great War presented by Mike Meech.
By 1915 British Expeditionary Force Commanders realised that communication problems inherent in Trench Warfare meant once an attack had started they lost control of the battle, as communication failed, due to the poor communication technology available. One method to partially overcome this was aeroplane 'Contact Patrols', first used seriously by the British during the Battle of the Somme 1916. The talk covers the evolution and methods used to try and make the system work. The second half of the talk gives details of research work done at Butley.

Guided tour of Clare's historic buildings and market
11.00am - 12.30pm
Clare Castle Country Park, Malting Lane, Clare, CO10 8NW
Picturesque timber-framed buildings, some with justly famous decorative pargeting, line the streets of this small town. Their construction can be seen clearly inside a recently-opened medieval walkway at Clare Priory, and also inside Clare Ancient House Museum. The grander houses were built by cloth merchants in this Wool Town, although who built each house is still a mystery. The market in Clare has existed since before the Norman Conquest, once stretching from the Castle, north to Clare Common, with the gothic parish church of St Peter & St Paul in the middle. It is now less than 1/4 the size, due to encroachment and two layers of infilling, the first probably of the 13th century. A beautiful but inaccessible vaulted cellar exists below modern antique shops, probably once a merchant''s storehouse. Although the A1092 now runs through the market, once there were stalls and shops (the second layer of infilling). The market has become an A-road and a car park, with a fishman on Fridays, the War Memorial, and the occasional civic event.
Free; parking £2

IAA Lunchtime Lecture - Charles II & the Mystery of the Ancient House
1.00pm - 2.00pm
Museum Street Methodist Church, Black Horse Lane, Ipswich, IP1 2EF



John Sutton asks "Did Charles II hide in Ipswich's Ancient House during his epic flight after the battle of Worcester in 1651?" While compelling evidence exists to refute this idea, a more distant association between the two can be established. For the woman who played the most vital role in Charles II's preservation - the royalist heroine Jane Lane - almost certainly took refuge in the Ancient House when she herself was on the run shortly after the Merry Monarch's Great Escape. This is a tale of derring-do, intrigue and suspense. Tea and coffee are served from 12.30pm.
Admission is free with a retiring collection to defray expenses. Donations of at least £2.00 per head are valued to maintain the series.
