Thursday, 31 January (1900hrs - 2100hrs) Tomes and China Sea Room

St. James's Place Wealth Management would like to invite you to join the Speaker's Corner with Mike Stewart.

Mike Stewart worked in and on the oceans of the world for over fifty years. He held a Short Service Commission in the Royal Navy, specialising in diving and bomb and mine disposal and went on to manage diving pperations globally, from the North Sea to New Zealand and the Atlantic to the Pacific.

For the Speakers' Corner, Mike will talk about his role in masterminding and leading one of the most challenging diving operations in recent history, the British expedition in 1982, to recover five tons of Russian Gold from HMS EDINBURGH lost in the Arctic Convoys of WWII. The consignment left Murmansk in Northern USSR, destined to pay the Allies for war materials when the Flag Ship was torpedoed by ‘U’ Boat 456 and sank in over 800ft in the Barents Sea on 2nd May 1942.  In 1982 this project was right on the edge of diving technology and even after thirty five years the achievement of this saturation dive, working at 800 feet remains a world record to this day.

This talk is free of charge to members and their guests.  Seating is limited, please register by clicking the 'Book Now' link at the top of this page to avoid disappointment.
