It was a freezing cold evening but there was a large turnout for the talk. The atmosphere was excellent, the coffee and the exhibitions good, the talk better. A fine evening. Pembroke Dock is the home of the flying boat, the heritage centre is its beating heart.

This was a small, but interesting exhibition. There is a charge, about £12 per family and the visit will probably take you 1-2 hours. Interesting collection of flying boat history.
