Dr Barrow will speak on the men from Tyneside and Northumberland who had social and family connections with Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood and how the latter supported them (or otherwise!) in their naval careers. This is a fascinating study of influence and patronage as well as inherent talent.
This talk is on Friday 15 April at 7.30pm at Berwick Parish Centre, The Parade, Berwick-upon-Tweed, TD15 1DF, England. Map. It's next to Holy Trinity Church. Entrance is through the churchyard. The suggested car parking is near the Barracks and Wallace Green.
Everyone is welcome. Admission free. Refreshments available.
