February 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

                                                         The Lustleigh Society

                                                       Speaker – Clive Charlton

                                              22nd February 2023 – 7.15 for 7.30

The “Ten Amazing Days” was the short but dramatic period the “fallen emperor” Napoleon spent in  Plymouth Sound in the summer of 1815, following his surrender to the British in the wake of the defeat at Waterloo. The talk will include Napoleon’s surrender, his journey from Rochefort on board HMS Bellerophon, the excitement, controversy and tensions of his stay in the ship just off Plymouth, and his departure into exile on St Helena. There will also be coverage of the career of HMS Bellerophon, by 1815 a battered and much travelled man-of-war.

Please join us Lustleigh Village Hall.

Come and join us and have a glass of wine.
