Unfortunately the Corona-situation in Spain (and in most of the rest of the world) has not improved yet, so we very much regret to have to inform you, that we have decided to reschedule our AGM to – hopefully – sometimes in the fall of 2021, the exact date to be communicated as soon as possible.
This is sad news, but the good news is, that in the meantime our AGM-program is nicely developing further. Lawrie Brewer will hold a presentation on the time C S Forester spent in Spain during the Civil War as correspondent of The Times, a period of his life we do not know very much about.
And Ken Napier is already enthusiastically working on a presentation on the rescue operation, in which HMS Sutherland under the command of Hornblower tows away HMS Pluto, dismasted in a sudden heavy squall, from the leeward shore under Cap Creux, where the French guns are already looming… A very well and excitingly written episode in “A Ship of the Line”.
The plan is to find the place of the French batteries on Cap Creus and to hold the presentation on site.
With the 2020 AGM rescheduled to the spring of 2021 we would cover both years 2020/2021; i. e. there will be no further AGM during the course of 2021.
