June 2021 Lecture
Jenny Moseley, Deputy Chair of the Friends and Trustee of the Wellington Trust presents the history of The Vickers Vimy. In 1919 and 1920, a Vimy flew from London to Australia, London to Cape Town, and across the Atlantic with Alcock and Brown. This presentation is about the re-enactment of the Vickers Vimy flights – the modern day trials and tribulations, including a plague in India and a crash in Indonesia, and another in Africa.
Each month we are pleased to welcome lectures from our friends and colleagues. Ranging from Maritime History and Restoration through to the work of the RNLI and todays Shipbuilding Industry.” Please feel free to enjoy these stimulating talks at your leisure.
A big thank you to our guest speaker, Jenny Moseley, Deputy Chair of the Friends and Trustee of the Wellington Trust.
