                                                                                                       BOOK LAUNCH

Capt Philip Sherwin received a communication from Peter Hore. Philip some time ago gave a lecture to SANO on the story of HMAS SYDNEY and the German Raider Kormorant. Much of the information he gleaned from Peter Hore's book. His new book Henry Harwood, Hero of the River Plate is being launched in Petersfield the details of which are below. Philip is unable to attend the launch but thought it may be of interest to SANO members.
Communication from Peter Hore to Philip:-

"I have just seen the first review of my new book Henry Harwood, Hero of the River Plate and the reviewer says ‘brilliant, I couldn’t stop reading’.
The book launch is at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, 15 August at One Tree Books in Petersfield ,GU32 3EL when the book will be on sale at a special price on the night of £20.
Tim O’Kelly, owner of the bookshop and a wonderful patron of writers, will be offering wine and nibbles.
It’s an open house, so please pass this invitation on – though I’d like to know, if possible, what numbers are so anyone intending to come should drop me a brief email Peter Hore < call (01428741852)'
See you there!

My regards
Peter  "



Joe Kirk, SANO Treasurer advises that this, courtesy of CONA, may be of interest to some of our members regarding a Year Of Engineering 2018 Open Day on Friday 28 September 2018 at HMS Raleigh:-

"I had some difficulty extracting full details from the message below, but on enquiry, the e-mail address for application forms is on the poster (?) – or if that doesn’t work try  If neither of these work then please let me know and I shall try to establish another way.
