Wednesday 27 November:  Waterloo Disremembered with Hal Sisk, RIYC Member and Chairman Association of Yachting Historians.

The conventional narrative of Wellington's great victory in 1815 omits, either accidentally through ignorance, or by choosing not to remember, the crucial contributions of other forces, not just the late arrival of Blucher's Prussians, but also critical encounters before the battle. And long after the battle, the work of hundreds of Dubliners was "disremembered" in a surprising "fake news" manipulation of the record---Wellington's Smallest Victory. Hal Sisk hopes to reveal for us the hidden and forgotten contributors to the defeat of Napoleon, and especially William Siborne.
