ActivityAlastair Ross founded Toc H, Inverness Group, in 1932. He also served as Secretary. Toc H was established in Talbot House in Poperinge, Belgium. The house was used as a haven of peace by commonwealth troops during World War I. The house became known as 'T.H.' which was 'Toc H' in the signallers language. Subsequently Toc H developed into a world wide organisation concerned with Christian values, breaking down the barriers between people and with community work. Toc H received a royal charter in 1922 and remains active.
