We are a friendly group and welcome new people to join us
We meet at least twice a year in Plymouth for talks and events
We have recently organised events to commemorate the centenary of Captain Scott’s Terra Nova Expedition and a large event in August 2014 to commemorate the centenary of the sailing of Shackleton’s Endurance from Plymouth. Go to the page SHACKLETON 100 to find out more.
