The turning of the year on Facebook.

The Society’s Facebook page is always a little busier as we approach New Year, partly because members recognise Kipling’s birthday, on 30th December, and perhaps there is an ‘Auld Lang Syne’ moment as we greet fellow ‘Kiplingites’ across the world.

This year, a birthday rendition of ‘Mandalay’ in Ukraininian recognised the strong support for our man in that embattled country, while the 143rd ‘Verse of the Week’, to start 2022, was a chance to share a rarely seen piece, written during our own South African War. Go to our Facebook link to share, and perhaps offer your own post.   John Walker
