Support the HMS Beagle
Perry Crickmere (S 74-77) is the administrator for The HMS Beagle Trust based in Pembrokeshire.

He writes: We have the ambitious aim of building a replica HMS Beagle. This remarkable little ship is celebrated for her Darwin voyage also performed amassing feats in survey work and the genesis of meteorological observations (first use of a wind scale given by Beaufort to Fitzroy). She is one of the most important historical vessels in our naval history. Our replica Beagle will not be simply another square rigged sail training vessel. She will be a replica from the outside, but internally she will have full scientific research capabilities and will perform the sort of work that a modern Darwin would do today. We even have a direct link to the International Space Station through our collaboration with NASA. There is lots of information on our website www.thebeagleproject.com. Any of you naval, Darwin or science buffs out there have a look and send us a donation. If any of you are in control of marketing budgets and are looking for a high profile, international project to add your company name to we would love to hear from you. Remember that 2009 is both the bicentenary of Darwins' birth as well as the 150 year anniversary of the publication of On The Origin of Species. I can be contacted on office@thebeagleproject.com
