This week at Pine Trees, we will be joined by Tony Selman, who is very kindly travelling all the from Kent to speak to us.
Tony is chairman of the Radio Officers Association and has a passion for promoting the work and history of his fellow ‘Sparks’ through the association and his presentations.
The story of the ill-fated Titanic is obviously well known. However, the loss of the RMS Republic in 1909 after a collision is perhaps less well known. The Marconi radio on board was used to send a ‘CQD’ distress call and helped save around 1200 lives on the Republic.
Tony’s presentation will be a fascinating one and one not to be missed as he explains how these two maritime disasters helped advance radio technology and the safety of those at sea.
Please join us this Thursday, 11th June from 7pm at Pine Trees to meet Tony and see his presentation.
