Whenever there is a fifth Monday in the month, we try to make the evening a bit more special and Rotarians partners are invited to join us. Our most recent one was a great evening at the Emsworth Sailing Club on Halloween. Excellent meal and service from the Sailing Club staff topped off by a superb presentation about the recovery of the Mary Rose and its installation into the museum in Portsmouth Dockyard made the evening one to remember. Our speaker from the Mary Rose Trust provided a real insider’s view – he was  one of the original archaeological team who dived on the wreck. He provided us with a slide show of personal images of the historical activity involved in recovering the skeleton of the ship, its treatment and restoration and views of the current magnificent museum, opened again this July.
