Sir Michael Gambon RIP

@graham55 - well said sir.

I’m a retired Master Mariner and was a Navigating Officer and Captain so the story depicted in Longitude, Dava Sobel’s astonishing book and the Harrison clocks is very close to my heart. In fact, the first time I saw the clocks at The Royal Observatory I cried with emotion.

I am applying to be a volunteer guide at The Royal Observatory to guide visitors around Flamsteed House in 2024 to tell the story of Harrison. He is my all time historical hero. No contest.

Fantastic! What a wonderful idea. Makes me wonder where I could put something back in.
