Mens Speaker Group
The Men’s Speaker Group meets at 7.30 pm in the Session Room on Thursday, 9 November when John Gibson will give a talk about Stirling Rugby Football Club. The details for the meeting on 7 December are still being finalised and all regular attendees will
be contacted in due course.
At the October meeting, we had a presentation by David Scott about the ups and downs of Waverley (the last sea going Paddle Steamer in the world). David explained how Waverley was built to replace its namesake which was sunk by enemy action in WW2.

Her maiden voyage was in 1947 and was declared redundant in 1973. Having been bought by a group of enthusiasts for £1 to save her from the scrapyard, she re-entered service in 1975 and hopefully will continue to sail for many more years.
