Latest Archivist Outing!

Continuing their research our three archivists, namely Andrew, Barrie, and Maurice recently undertook a working lunch and tour of the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) in Alrewas, Staffordshire.
Following their usual practice, they regularly meet together every 3 to 4 months to both consider and undertake future research work that needs to be undertaken on behalf of the OD Society. Obviously, the recent finding of 93 Kedleston Road in Derby where they found it had been built in the 1880s as an annexe for 25 pupils who were school boarders has been top of their agenda. Plans were also made where to concentrate their studies into 2020.
It is hoped to be in a position to announce the culmination of their major 2019 research work undertaken once we get to mid to late Autumn. SO WATCH THIS SPACE.

CCF Ceremonial Sword Acquired By Our Archivist

Yes, gentlemen, the OD Society are now the proud holders of the original CCF Ceremonial Sword and Scabbard as worn during all official parades of the OTC, JTC and CCF from the early 1900s until 1973 when the CCF was disbanded.
The last holder of the sword Mike Foulke as the RAF Commanding Officer at the Moorway Lane site has so very kindly donated it to the OD Society.
