Falklands Islands Seminar

From: Michael Nolan <maptnolan@gmail.com> Sent: 24 May 2020 09:28 To: Roy Wood <roy.wood58@btinternet.com> Subject: List of Possible F.I. Speakers/Subjects

We have had Manterfield and Peaty talk on F.I. in one of the first seminars.

I believe the thrust should be on the Campaign. The map display will largely do for the Geo input, but, the Op Corporate Report and/or John Himbury’s RE Journal article could be souvenir handouts, albeit at some production cost.

Also, of course, John Himbury is still with us, living in Fleet, and should be a VIP guest if not a speaker also.
