The Annual John Warsop Memorial Lecture
Saturday 26 October 2002 2.30pm
Princess Royal Gallery, Royal Naval Museum

'Rediscovering Nelson' by Colin White

Colin White, formerly Deputy Director of the Royal Naval Museum, will reveal the new insights he is uncovering into the life and career of Admiral Lord Nelson in this year's John Warsop Memorial Lecture, to be given in the Princess Royal Gallery at the Royal Naval Museum in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on Saturday 26th October at 2.00 pm.

In his new post as Director, Trafalgar 200 at the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, Colin White has been scouring the Museum's extensive archives, as well as travelling the length and breadth of the country to study Nelson letters in private collections. He promises that the results of this research will challenge the traditional view of Nelson's battles and his relationships.

The John Warsop Memorial Lecture is sponsored by the Friends of the Royal Naval Museum and HMS Victory in memory of Rear Admiral John Warsop CB a former Chairman.

The lecture is free, with tea and coffee from 1.30 pm. However, places must be pre-booked by contacting:
