BIFHSGO November Meeting

The BIFHSGO meeting closest to Remembrance Day often features a presentation with a military connection.

On November 12 BIFHSGO member and local author Brooke Broadbent will present a story from his family history Moonrakers at Peace and War.

As has been the case now for several years, but maybe not much longer, the event is in the auditorium at Library and Archives Canada. It will be preceded at 9am by an education session on Online Books given by society president Glenn Wright.

Do you know the origin of the expression "Moonrakers" ?
Wiltshire smugglers would store / hide casks of wine in ponds.
If the excise men came along as they were trying to retrieve them, they would claim they were trying to rake out the moon
So 'tis said
