 North West Passage - Nigel Barraclough 

The North West Passage – who found it and who didn’t.

The North West passage in the Artic north of Canada: a fabled alternative route to the east has been the subject of controversy, claims that were unfounded but more importantly the true “discoverer” was vilified and never given the credit by the Establishment – arguably still doesn’t.

Nigel Barraclough will talk about the history and one of the (conveniently) forgotten heroes of Artic exploration.

(Free entry - A collection will be held at the end of the talk to support the club and clubs nominated charity).

Organiser:    Dick Beddoe
