The idea for the group has been floating around for some time but the VGS made the first moves in getting the group together at the beginning of 2021. We made contact with the SVA History Group to try to find out what history was known and some members of that group, who are also VGS members, showed an interest in getting involved.

Emails were exchanged and the first Zoom meeting took place on the 4th Feb where we tried to pin down exactly what we hoped to achieve.
