Summer 2021 Review is on its way


The Summer 2021 edition of The Review is on its way to members.

This edition contains articles spanning more than a millenium and circling the globe: John McCormack writes of his latest theory of the origins of a curious inscribed stone in Vale Church Cemetery with links to the Holy Grail – and local artist Mark Cook writes about his wonderful statue of Victor Hugo on a bench which was unveiled last month.

We have more tales of Alan Morris’s nineteenth-century antipodean family history, this time by way of New York; and our regular Guernsey Around the World feature goes beyond the earth’s atmosphere for the first time, and explores a Moon crater named after Guernsey-born astronomer, Warren De La Rue.

We include Yan Marquis’ profile of Guernesiais poet, Denys Corbet: the first in a series of articles about the men and women honoured with a blue plaque in Guernsey – written by those best qualified to do so.

We have a report from the first Society in-person meeting in Oxford since lockdown restrictions were lifted; the latest winner of our Eisteddfod trophy – member Diana Pritchard; and excellent news about the various recognitions of another member, Leonie Scott-Matthews for her writing and her contribution to theatre in Hampstead.

The usual features including book reviews, a round-up of local news and the latest plans for Society meetings are also included.

Those who have signed up for electronic copies can download them now from The Review page.

The Review is sent to free to members three times a year.
