This was truly another
"Dartmouth Moment" Nearly every Gallery was open during the
evening with wine and soft drinks flowing freely ! Many locals
were heard to say "it's ages since I was in here, we must come
back next week to buy the present for ..." A big thank you to
the galleries for the wine, and a big thank you to the people of
Dartmouth who turned this into such a nice evening.
2. Ben Levin's
film archive of Dartmouth from the Second World War
an absolutely packed Guildhall, Ben proceeded to show previously
unseen footage of Dartmouth during the Second World War.
Organised by Richard Rendle shown here with Ben Levin, the Old
Dartmouthians turned out in style, a few were heard to say "I
haven't been here since Any Questions" was that 20 years ago ?
The final film will be available at the Museum in a few months.
Dartmouth dot TV hopes to have some stills from it as well.
Ben came to Dartmouth in the
early eighties, fell in love with the town and has been coming
back ever since. Ben recently perused the USA Military Film
Library to get hold of this film, thanks Ben !

Many companies offer your own web site, but you
could end up registering your own domain, signing up to
a contract and then just getting a holding page ! Now
for just £150 we will do everything, we will register
obviously the name of your establishment, we will put in
the photographs and we will put in the words, so you
just sit back and admire the end result. If you have a
domain name, but no web site, for the same price we will
do it all for you. If you currently advertise and pay
extra for an "additional page" on any other web site,
consider just giving your new web site address instead,
you save money, get the same or better exposure and have
your own dedicated web site to boot !
In huge style HMS Cornwall a 500 foot Type 22
Frigate arrived in Dartmouth for a long weekend.
Spectacularly illuminated after dark, boatloads of thirsty
staff flooded the pubs at night, well certainly in the DA
where we were sneaking a 12" fully loaded Pizza !
