'In November 1923, thirty years after the last Hobart whaler returned empty, a long black Norwegian whale ship, the Sir James Clark Ross, slid into port together with five small whale catchers to mark the start of an 8‐year relationship between Hobart and Antarctic whaling...  Michael Stoddart, one of the MMT Committee members and a volunteer, has had a long interest in Antarctic whaling. His talk will focus on whaling out of Hobart in the 1920s, a little known aspect of whaling in the Southern Ocean and around Antarctica.' 

It's at the Royal Society Room, from 12 noon to 1pm,  Tuesday 1st March. See the attached flyer for more information: http://bit.ly/1Qmu1ae
