The Naval Academy Lectures

October 2001 - March 2002
The John Warsop Lecture

Saturday 13 October 2001 - 2.30 pm - 4.00 pm

Sir Julian Oswald: "Sea Blindness or Sea Sense?"

Former First Sea Lord, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Julian Oswald started by discussing how well or badly we look after a key element of our Maritime Heritage - our Historic Ships. (He is Chairman of the National Historic Ships Committee and of the Maritime Trust). He then went on to look at the state of the UK Merchant Fleet today, the new Tonnage Tax regime and associated training requirements and reviewed the future prospects for the Red Ensign Fleet, (he is a Director of James Fisher and Sons - a Barrow-in-Furness based shipping company).

The John Warsop 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 of the Friends.

The lecture was held in the Princess Royal Gallery at the Royal Naval Museum.
