Origin of the Club
          Who  We Are

The Tillsonburg Military History Club has been in existence since mid 2007 - an initiative undertaken by the late Mr. Robin Barker-James, a well local known military historian.

Membership is open to everyone who shares an interest in World and Military History.

Our fairly unique club draws together a group of men and women of all ages and backgrounds who share an interest in historical and current military events both in Canada and around the World.

You are invited to join us in a warm and friendly atmosphere where you can learn, share and express your own thoughts, experiences and opinions.
