Maritime and History Talk: Bridging The Strait with Pirrie Shiel

Join the Bass Strait Maritime Centre for their next Maritime & History Talk!

“Bridging the Strait – A Salute to the first man to fly across Bass Strait” by Pirrie Shiel is a tribute to Tasmanian born Lt Arthur L. Long. Come along to find out about the family, life and times of a young man who served in World War 1 as a pilot. He had the foresight to imagine the post war possibilities of a future in aviation – most particularly in his home state.

Copies of Bridging the Strait will be available to purchase on the evening, as well as ‘UP in the air in Tasmania’, a book by James Boag.

This Maritime & History Talk is brought to you by BSMC & Stanley Discovery Museum
