Join us for ‘Extreme Voyages -1896 to 1968’.

This online talk presented by Jeremy Batch will be hosted by IWA Chiltern Branch.

Jeremy Batch has been a regular speaker at Chiltern Branch meetings for 9 years. Every year, his excellent presentations ensure a good audience, even in January.

In 2021 he will deliver his talk “Extreme Voyagers” 1896 to 1968. Any toddler who waved his flag at Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant (Spithead 1897) would have gone on to learn about the Wright Brothers first manned flight just 6 years later. If he or she, had just exceeded their ‘3 score years and ten’, they would also have seen men walk on the moon. Within their lifetime men and women would have travelled through North East and North West Passages, to the poles, to the bottom of the oceans, through the Sound Barrier, to the edge of the atmosphere and into space. Several would have sailed single-handed around the world.

Who were these people and who were the shipwrights, designers, scientists and engineers who their voyages possible? Jeremy will enlighten us.

It’s easy to join by tablet, phone or computer. Register your place to receive joining details.
