The Anglo-Finnish Society 1911–2011

by W. R. Mead

There have been three chapters in the story of the Anglo-Finnish Society. In 1911, a group of friends of Finland established a small organisation to keep in the public eye the political problems being faced by the Grand Duchy of Russia. After Finland was formally recognised as an independent nation and Britain was established as its principal trading partner, membership rose to several hundred, dominated by members from the commercial organisations of the City of London. The third chapter in the story dates from the resuscitation of the Society after the Second World War, since when its focus has been on cultural and social activities.
