  • H Division Crime Club UK

    As some of you on Facebook may have noticed, earlier this week was the launch of the H Division Crime Club UK.



    This exciting venture is a sister organisation to the UK Jack the Ripper Conference but will focus on other crimes not just the Ripper case.

    At the moment we just have a Facebook group available at https://www.facebook.com/groups/318844814968383/ with a website coming very soon. The initial plan is 3 or 4 weekend meet ups a year around the UK, including a Christmas meet up that will include a formal black tie dinner and crime speaker.

    The idea of H Division dates back to the 2012 Oxford social meet up organised by Trevor Bond where we first discussed running a true crime club. Earlier this year these plans were discussed again, with serious discussion beginning around July. I came on board at the start of October and the organising team have since been joined by Jonathan Menges.



    "We are proud to announce the launch of H Division Crime Club UK, founded in 2014 by members of the Jack the Ripper Conference organising committee alongside other experts in the field of international true crime. H Division will be a unique social and research opportunity, offering alternating London/ UK regional meet-ups and an active social media presence. Open to all, we aim to promote the in-depth, compassionate and critical study of UK and international true crime, with regular nods to our spiritual home of London's East End and the most notorious case in the history of true crime - the 'Jack the Ripper' murders of 1888. So welcome, and we hope to hear from you soon!"

              CRIME CLUB UPDATE : THE DAGGER

              After much stalling , debates , discussions , ranting and not settling for second best . We are Pleased to say we are back on track for a launching of the new Dagger crime magazine in 2016.

              This will feature true crime articles , updates , future events , social news plus Jack the Ripper topics / articles.

              Available as PDF or for a bit extra a hardcopy.

              The magazine and the H Division crime club will be advertised to around 30,000 people per year and we hope it will grow to be a very successful venture.

              We are in talks with other similar magazines ( mostly in the states ) and so far things are looking bright.

              Production and printing will be ( fingers crossed ) an East London production. So its straight from the spiritual home of many.

              NOW THE GOOD NEWS :

              If you would like to contribute to the Dagger wether it be true crime , ripper or something you think readers would find interesting then feel free to contact me via the crime club website ( see bottom of the page )

              Our goal is to promote the club and magazine to a stage were all contributions and articles are paid for. So here is your chance to earn money for your hobby and research.

              Many thanks

              Ricky Cobb

                      Just out of interest, is it just me, or has the "public" Facebook group just become non-public?

                      When I try to view the discussion page, a prompt appears asking me to log in. That's never happened before.

                        I have just had a look Chris, it is still a Public Group so I am not sure why you can't access it.

                          When I click on the link in post #1 I get a split second view of the page and then the login prompt. I'm not a Facebook member, though.

                            Not sure, I am usually logged into Facebook. Perhaps try logging into other Facebook Groups? It does say Public Group on the H Division cover.

                              Thanks. I've now dug out my Facebook login details, and when I'm logged in I can see the page. But I can't see it when I'm not logged in. I suppose it's a weirdness of Facebook.

                              I see in discussions elsewhere some people say you shouldn't be able to see Facebook groups at all when not logged in, and other people saying they can, or have been able to in the past and can't now.
