Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie were among the famous names included in the talk entitled “ A Line in the Sand”, the story of The Alamo and the Rise of Texas, which was enjoyed by the members of the Probus Club of Havant, on Monday, 3rd July, at their monthly meeting.
The talk, by David Skillen, covered the true story of The Alamo, as compared to the Hollywood versions! It went on to the Battle of Jacinto, after which the independent State of Texas was formed.
Probus Club meets once a month, at Denvilles Club in Havant. Members include retired PROfessional and BUSiness people from many walks of life, who enjoy a drink, a good lunch, by Chef Sam, and talks on a wide range of subjects.
