FINDING HMS EREBUS AND HMS TERROR January 31, 7:30pm Presentation by Captain Willian (Bill) Noon
In September 2014, Bill Noon, as Captain of the Coast Guard icebreaker Sir Wilfrid Laurier, played a key role in the discovery of HMS Erebus. Erebus was one of two ships from Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated quest to find the Northwest Passage that began in 1845 and ended when his vessels became stuck in ice. Captain Noon will talk about how the discovery unfolded and will share with us photographs of the search process and the materials that were discovered from both HMS Erebus and HMS Terror under the waters off King William Island in the Arctic.
