We are all looking forward to the next session in our talks on Travel & Exploration : Journeys to Paradise: Exploration and Exploitation in the South Pacific on Tuesday 21 March.
The speaker will be one of our own members, John Harris. A former Merchant Navy and Naval Reserve Officer (as well as former Steward of Christ Church, Oxford) John has always had a deep interest in British naval history, & has been able to use retirement to further his researches. He now teaches maritime history programmes as part of OU Continuing Education’s Oxford Experience
Iffley Church Hall door will open from 7.10 pm, the talk start at 7.30 pm. Non-members are welcome, there is a small door charge.
A trip on a replica HMS Endeavour is available for the brave in Whitby – don’t worry it is about 40% the size of ship which was Cook’s during his 1768 Pacific expedition!
