Travels with Tilmantalk by Bob Comlay
In The Langstone Room
“To those who went to the War straight from school and survived it, the problem of what to do afterwards was peculiarly difficult”.
Venerated by Sir Chris Bonington, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and countless mountaineers and navigators, H W (Bill) Tilman is a legend of high altitude climbing and high latitude sailing. This is a rare opportunity to hear a first-hand account of Tilman’s life by local sailor and photographer Bob Comlay, illustrated with unpublished letters, photographs and rarely seen film footage.
