First Overland Reunion

Early last year I posted a review of First Overland, a fascinating tale of a mid-1950s overland voyage from London to Singapore. Since I made the post, Antony Barrington Brown, one of the expedition members, has made several helpful comments, the most recent of which came today with news of a First Overland Reunion.

The reunion is being held in London (England) at the Royal Geographical Society on Friday, 25 November at 7:00 p.m. and will be introduced by Sir David Attenborough. Tickets are free and available from Tim Slessor at 37 Southdean Gardens, London SW19 6NT, telephone 020 8788 7054 or email, and from Antony Barrington Brown at 26c Upton Lovell, Warminster, BA12 0JW, telephone 01985 850 106.
