2015 Battle of Cape St Vincent Lecture
06/02/2015 @ 12:30 - 16:00
12:30 for 13.00 on Friday 6th February 2015 at The Union Jack Club, London, SE1 8UJ
To commemorate Nelson’s first great victory in 1797 off Portugal’s Cape St Vincent, The Nelson Society is returning to The Union Jack Club for this always popular fixture (just a few yards from exit 2 of Waterloo Station, so easy access from all parts of the UK.)
Over the past few years the event has boasted top guest speakers like Andrew Lambert, the internationally renowned author and British Naval Historian and Jessica Lewis, the curator of Cutty Sark – and next year is no exception.
In 2015, we are delighted to welcome Martyn Downer, a leading specialist in the identification and sale of historic jewels, objects and artefacts, especially relating to Admiral Lord Nelson. A former director and Head of Jewellery at Sotheby’s, Martyn is the author of three books including the bestselling ‘Nelson’s Purse’ which recounted the story behind his discovery of a remarkable trove of lost treasures belonging to Admiral Nelson.
Book early as numbers are limited: return the form in the next Dispatch or email email@example.com now.
