When they are gone, they are gone!
Dr Tony Barrow is a regular speaker at the Society and indeed was a founder member and its first Secretary. He is also an acknowledged author, with a definite focus on local maritime matters, covering whaling, the Press Gang and of course our man, Admiral Lord Cuthbert Collingwood.
We are also lucky to have a number of copies of one of Tony’s books ‘Collingwood’s Northumbrians’. Using primary sources, contemporary accounts, correspondence and family papers, the book explores the socio-cultural context of Admiral Collingwood’s career and those of the officers he commanded. The role of provincial patronage and family connections are examined alongside the rewards, and hazards, of the naval life in Georgian times. Collingwood’s reputation for recruiting young officers from his native Northumberland is clear from this detailed and informative text.
This highly recommended book is available at £7.50*, post and packing included. Please contact the Society Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on ordering and payment methods.
