Against all odds

‘Royal Navy: Against all Odds’ – Talk (Event from 2017)

Please note this event is replacing the cancelled event ‘The Vic Hutfield Story’


Royal Naval Association, 66 Fareham Road, Gosport, Hampshire, PO13 0AG

In this illustrated talk, Richard M Jones will look at Royal Navy unique missions. This will include missions that seemed doomed to failure but were actually very successful during WW2.

Richard has dedicated his life to the research of shipwrecks and other historic disasters. Over 20 years of research has resulted in an extensive archive and some successful memorial campaigns. He is already a well published author on disaster subjects such as ‘The Great Gale of 1871’, ‘Capsized in the Solent: the SRN6-012 Hovercraft Disaster’ and his latest ‘Royal Victoria Rooms:The Rise and Fall of a Bridlington Landmark’.

Richard is also a long serving member of the Royal Navy, so the Royal Naval Association is an excellent venue for his event.

Duration: approx 60 minutes

Please note: This event replaces ‘The Vic Hutfield Story’ which had to be cancelled.


  • Saturday 9 September: 1930-2030
