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.

H​OU 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”.
