Join Martin Read from the School of Marine Science and Engineering at Plymouth University for a talk on probably the most famous shipwreck and rescue in Plymouth Sound.
In January 1796 amidst a raging storm, the English East Indiaman 'Dutton' struck sunken submerged rocks in front of Plymouth Hoe. The loss of up to 600 people on board seemed inevitable. At considerable risk to himself, Sir Edward Pellew RN came aboard the stricken vessel, took charge and organised the rescue.
