Speaker Evening - The Story of Dr John Rae

Start Date: 17 Jan 2019 20:00

End Date: 17 Jan 2019 22:00

Venue: Berkswell & Balsall Common Sports and Community Association

John Andrews will be telling us about the story of Dr John Rae.  John Rae was a Scottish surgeon who explored parts of northern Canada, found the final portion of the Northwest Passage and reported the fate of Franklin's lost expedition.  He was noted for physical stamina, skill at hunting and boat handling, use of native methods and the ability to travel long distances with little equipment while living off the land.

This is a follow-up from John Andrew's excellent talk last year on his own trip to Greenland and the Northwest Passage.
