Just to say that copies of the Centaur DVD are still available - as detailed in RO8 Spring 2011 edition.
Send a UK Cheque for £7.50 payable to D Chapman-Andrews , 26 Cranford Avenue, Exmouth, Devon EX8 2PZ. (includes P&P). Include a note with your name and address for return.
There are still 31 DVDs available from the 'Print Run' of 150 and i am reluctant to make another bulk order.
Did you see the poorly illustrated Channel4 TV programme on Sunday at 8.00pm on 'Nelson's Navy: Back from the Dead'? The 1844 skeleton of a Hasler Burial was DEFINITELY not one of Nelson's Sailors! The examples and depictions of life onboard a RN warship were in poor taste. The British Gun Crews and RN Seamanship deserved a better presentation.
