South Georgia Night for Severn Unit
The Tewkesbury based Severn Unit spent a night learning about South Georgia in the South Atlantic from a talk given by Ken Whittaker who spent almost a decade as Master of the fishery patrol vessel Pharos SG in the region before his retirement.
He told of many projects he was involved in from fishery patrols to the transportation of scientists to and from the island.
HOU Nic Price said, “Ken gave us a real insight into life on and around South Georgia and some astonishing pictures of the abundant wildlife in the area such as penguins, seals and whales”.
