Our professional speaker for March was an old friend of FU3A – Mike Randall, who had spoken to us on several occasions previously, including via Zoom during the Lockdown in 2020.

Mike is an highly engaging speaker and we were treated to His t “My Father was a Spy”.  He told  us about his dad’s 27 years in the Army during which time he was captured by the Germans.  While in prison he learned to speak fluent German and Russian which led to his work after the War with the Foreign Office.  His regular overseas postings, where he was able to use his language skills, proved to be of great benefit to this country during the Cold War period, working with Counter-Intelligence.

Everyone who attended was gripped by the talk. Thank You very much Mike, until the next time!!
