CZECH HISTORY & MUSIC TALK.

6-5-18. Dvorak Society AGM. Is Followed by a Talk by DR Katya Kocourek & Patrick Lambert. About the Creation Of Czechoslovakia and Music During the Great War.

Before Talk Begins. I Get Coffee & Lemon Cake. Have Difficulty to Navigate back to My Seat. In the Cramped Room. People Have Taken Seats. Plus are Not Too Keen. To Allow Me Back to My Seat & Belongings. Spilled Nearly All My Coffee in to My Saucer !.

Dr Katya Kocourek begins Explaining the History. The Czechoslovak Legion Volunteer Armed Forces. Their Aim to Win Support for Independence. From the Austrian, Hungarian Empire.

Many Fought in Russia. Which at The Time the Czechs Classed as Friends to Their Cause. The Legion Fighting in Major Battles, Like Zborov.

What I Found Fascinating. That there were Czechs Fighting for the Hapsburg Empire. If Anything Explains Why War is Futile. This is it !. Czechs Fighting Their Own People !.

The Russian Civil war Followed. The Legion now involved Fighting the Bolsheviks. Legion at Times in Control of All the Trans - Siberian Railway. Before Evicting Russia.

On this Theme, the Legiovlak Museum Train has Been Travelling around the Czech Republic. For the Past Three Years. Explaining the History. Over Six Carriages Restored Like The Legionnaires Used. Ambulance, Staff Car, Shop. Living Quarters, Postal Wagon, Blacksmiths Workshop & Armoured Car.

Patrick Lambert then Talked about the Music, of This Time. Liked the Sung Czech National Anthem. The Part Sokol Played in Czech Music. Amused by the Critic of Suk, Novak & Dvorak. Compared with a Snake !.

Interesting Talk & Very Informative.

People leave the Talk leaving their Dirty Plates on the Floor. I Helped pick them up. To Help the Pump Room Catering Staff. Least i can do to thank them for their Hospitality.
