I first became connected to the underwater world whilst serving in the Royal Navy on a salvage vessel. After leaving the Navy I joined the Northampton Branch of the British Sub Aqua Club in 1975 and have been diving ever since along with three of my diving mates of that time. We have been instrumental in diving on and discovering historical and treasure wrecks around UK waters.
I am currently the Secretary of the South West Maritime Archaeological Group recognised as the number one dive team in the UK having artifacts on show in the British Museum, Plymouth Art Gallery, the Royal Albert Museum in Exeter, and the Salcombe Maritime Museum. The team has also appeared in several TV and radio programmes, newspaper and magazine articles and books about their discoveries.
About my talks...
Talk duration approx 1 hour but this can be reduced to suit time constraints and I am always more than happy to answer questions at the end. All talks are Power Point presentations, I have my own laptop and projector and if required I can bring my own screen. I also bring along some items of shipwreck finds to exhibit the talks where applicable.
For further details on each talk scroll down and read the individual write-ups – if you require more details then please contact me.
My fee is £60.00 within a ten mile radius of Dartmouth and thereafter 45p per mile expenses. In some cases I am prepared to stay overnight if distance warrants it.
