WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE RSAA?

The RSAA hosts free lectures for members every other week during term time. Lectures typically take place on a Wednesday in a Central London location, and if the lecture is at 1.15pm it is preceded by an optional buffet lunch. Wine is served before evening lectures.

In addition to the lecture programme, there are also a number of social events where members and their guests can meet others with similar interests.

Although a printed calendar is sent out to members, dates and venues are subject to change and additional events may be added to the calendar at short notice. It is therefore advisable to check this online calendar for the latest details.

The Second Anglo-Sikh War

11 January 2017

The Second Anglo-Sikh War

Mr Amarpal Sidhu, Military Historian, will talk on the Second Anglo-Sikh war, a a conflict no-one expected. In April 1848, two British officers were killed by a mutinous garrison in the southern Punjabi city of Multan. The murders triggered a local rebellion which over the months would develop into full scale war. The result would be the annexation of the whole of the Punjab and British control reaching the borders of Afghanistan.
