What is a Drill Hall?

November 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$10 – $20

Recently the RHSV took part in Open House Melbourne which concentrated our minds on the history and architecture of our home, the Australian Army Medical Corps Drill Hall which was built, like so many others in 1938 in the build-up to WWII. The building’s history, its original purpose and its architecture are inextricably linked.  And who better to explain those connections than Mike O’Brien? Mike will be addressing Drill Halls in general – what is drill? what happens in drill halls?

Mike is a committed community activist and a believer in a fair go. He is an experienced manager and company director, has run an iconic Melbourne antiquarian bookstore for 17 years and is an advocate for small business as the main engine that drives our economy. He had an extensive military career but balanced it with directorships of a listed company and a non-bank financial institution. He has tertiary qualifications in Science and Management. He has lectured around the world on cruise ships for 10 years gaining an enviable number of days at sea, an excellent remedy for a former Infantryman. He writes local history and believes our built heritage should be highly valued.

This lecture will be live at the RHSV and also offered on ZOOM.

Come along and enjoy some Christmas cheer as this is our last in person event for the year. Like all RHSV lectures we will have refreshments (with a Christmas theme) from 5:30pm until 6pm when the lecture will commence. The Zoom audience will log-in at 6pm.
