Not quite how you imagined it

A look at the daily lives of the officers and men in the Royal Navy during the period of 1750 to 1815. Alan Gilmore is here to change your perceptions about everything from conditions and pay, to food, disease; punishments and battle.

Talks are approx. 1 hour long, with time for questions. 

As there is a cost involved in putting on the Learning Lunchtime talks, donations to the Forest of Marston Vale are much appreciated. Parking charges also apply. Friends of the Forest get free parking all year round* at the Forest Centre - click here for more information
