I used to greatly enjoy the seminars organised by the Western Front Association and attended them each year from 1992 to 2001. In many ways they encouraged my interest in the subject and built my network of like-minded friends and contacts. The seminar of 1992 was not the first: the series had begun in 1988. 2001 was, if I recall, the last. Difficulties arose in booking what had been the Hill College at Abergavenny, which had been a comfortable and affordable venue for such a thing.
