Margaret has been actively involved with the project since before the recovery in 1982 and she was present at key landmarks over the past 30 years. Her talk covers the momentous events in the life of the ship, namely the sinking, the rediscovery, recovery and display.

She will show illustrations of the exciting museum which unites the ship with the artefacts giving us insights into the lives of the men who lived and died on The Mary Rose.

The meeting will take place at the Holiday Inn, Telegraph Way, Morn Hill, Winchester at 7.30pm. Guests as well as interested potential members are very welcome. There will be a two course meal at a cost of £16 prior to Margaret’s talk. Please let us know here by Friday 8 February 2019 if you would like to book a place.

Margaret will tell us all about the museum and hopefully whet our appetites for a planned group visit later in the year.
