Collingwood Society AGM 2017

This month’s Collingwood Society meeting was the AGM, which means that there’s not an awful lot to say about it. Some of the talks for next year have been arranged, and some are still being worked on – the lecture in March will be on the Georgian merchant navy, and there will be a talk about smaller boats of the period, and possibly a visit to the Northumberland record office, where there is quite a lot of naval correspondence – and the members were asked to think of subjects they might want to contribute. Also the 2019 lecture is already organised, and will be on the Franklin expedition!

After the official business there was a quiz, which was good fun if a bit obscure.
