An important message from the organisers
Looking to “fill that gap on that second shelf”? Look no further!
The Society is looking for a member to take over the post of Honorary Treasurer with effect from the AGM in May.
This three-week bespoke trip to India, tailored for the Society, promises to be an experience like no other. As we see the best of India, we plan to bring together the Holmesian references to India, enjoy privileged access to private buildings, and travel in style with fellow Holmesians.
