General Meeting (June 2018) – William Pitt the Younger and Revolutionary France

A General Meeting of the Edmund Burke’s Club of Australia will be held on Friday, 15 June 2018, at the Melbourne Savage Club – arrive at 6 pm for pre-drinks with the talk to commence from 6:30 pm, which will be delivered by one of our own club members, Mr Brendan Tam.

Brendan will be speaking on the topic of William Pitt the Younger and his role in the defeat of Revolutionary France in the Napoleonic Wars. This topic is of particular interest to our Club due to the importance of Pitt and the conflict with France to the historical context surrounding Edmund Burke and the spirit of the revolution.

Brendan has recently completed his honours thesis on this topic at the University of Melbourne.

As usual, we will have dinner at the RACV Club afterwards. RSVPs for those able to attend the meeting and/or the dinner are needed by Tuesday, 12 June and can be made by contacting

As always, the dress code will be tie and jacket for men and the equivalent for ladies.
