Hearts of oak and the Nelson touch - 4th October 2010
A delightful extra social event was organised this evening by Liveryman Jenny Moseley. Her good friend David Williams (not our Court Assistant of the same name) is an expert on Nelson and Admiral Collingwood, who fought alongside Nelson frequently. David gave us a wonderful illustrated lecture and brought a piece of original oak from HMS Victory as the top prize in a charity raffle. We even have a descendant of Collingwood in the Marketors, but I'm not telling who!
