We then had an offering from new committee member, Jeff. He showed a 1940's weekend at Rawtenstall.
We could do with seeing more from Jeff.

It was then over to our refugees from Preston. Jim and his colleagues showed us three films from the Preston club's heyday.

All were based on true stories.
The first "U482". The story of the sinking of a German U-boat off the coast of Scotland.

Then it was " Night Flight to Essen", a wartime love story and the consequences of a bombing raid to Germany.
We had a brilliant response for this "Members Night".

Sometimes when we put out a plea for volunteers the response can be under whelming, not this time.

First to put their head above the parapet was prospective new member Albia.  She showed us an early effort of hers.

This was basically a commercial type film of a local cafe. It was filmed using a Gopro camera and no other equipment. This meant the sound suffered somewhat. However the filming and the construction of the finished product was very promising.
Finally "Blindfold at Dawn", the harrowing story of a young WW1 volunteer who succumbed to "shell shock" and as a result was branded a coward.
The punishment was, in those days, death by firing squad. Fortunately there was, in this case a last minute reprieve.

An excellent evening
from our members.
