HMS represented on Elba

Post date: Jun 27, 2014 10:41:5 AM

Sandra and Gordon Simmonds from HMS spent a weekend on the island of Elba attending a whole raft of Regency re-enactment commemorating Napoleon’s brief ‘residence’ 200 years ago. A highlight of their weekend was a trip on the replica 18th century brig La Grace. Gordon and Sandra had booked their trip in advance but chanced upon the HMS Amphion group from Italy who had been engaged to provide the brig with a Royal Navy period crew. Our HMS members were welcomed with open arms, as you can see.
