Rolling down to Rio

Discover the extraordinary story of one of Wales’ greatest sea captains at a special event at Pembroke Dock Iibrary next week.

David is a maritime historian, a subject he has studied extensively and has always been passionate about. He is also a well-known naturalist, having become the first warden of Skomer Island in 1960. He was awarded the MBE in 2003.
