Paul Esser Memorial Lecture, 1980

Oliver Lloyd has sent the following notice:


The lecture is on Wednesday, 13th February, 1980, at 8.15 pm. in the Tyndall Memorial Theatre, Department of Physics, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol 8.

Martyn Farr, aged 28, is one of our Ace Cave Divers.  He started cave diving in 1970 and has done notable dives, extending to their utmost limits such caves as Wookey Hole, P8 in Derbyshire, Dan yr Ogof, Porth yr Ogof, Ogof Afon Hepste and all principal caves in Co. Fermanagh.

He has written a book about cave diving called 'The Darkness Beckons' which will be published in February 1980.

He is an experienced lecturer with a nice easy style and lots of beautiful photographs, including underwater shots, which he takes himself.

As usual admission will be free.  Those coming from a distance may have seats reserved for them, if they will write and give me the numbers in their party.
