After lunch at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel, biographer David Crane talked about Scott: the man and the myth and this talk was followed by a talk by Prof Lloyd Peck of BAS on Marine Science in Antarctica. Lloyd also gave a well-received interactive talk for young people the evening before at the new Scott College in Stoke village.
A gala dinner was preceded by live music from the Polar Trio who sang Edwardian songs. The Duke of Cornwall provided a fine three course dinner in the ballroom and Falcon Scott gave a very personal and thought provoking talk about growing up with such a famous father and grandfather.
Everyone enjoyed the day and the President of the Society John Killingbeck thanked organisers Julie Ellis and Brigette Dixon, the Scott 150 committee and sponsors very warmly for their organisation and support.
