With talk by Lt Fergus Holland RN
Tarset Village Hall / Wednesday 25th March
Presented in collaboration with Tarset First Thursday Films.
Illustrated talk by Lt Fergus Holland RN followed by screening of South (1919)
Photographed by Frank Hurley, South is the film record of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s heroic but ill-starred attempt to cross Antarctica in 1914-16. It is both a unique historical document, and a tribute to the indomitable courage of a small party of men who set out on a voyage of discovery that turned into an epic struggle for survival.
Lt Fergus Holland RN will talk from his personal experiences of ‘Life at sea in the 21st century Royal Navy; what they do, where they operate, and why'. Before talking a little about the RNLI, the voluntary lifesaving organisation covering the entire coastline of the UK and Ireland.
