Talk: a Victorian Hero - by Julie Chandler

Colonel Frederick Burnaby was the strongest man in the British Army and an adventurer, maverick and all-round good guy.  He travelled to dangerous places from war-torn Spain to the Sudan and the steppes of Russia, enjoying the new craze of hot-air ballooning on the way!  Julie is a Blue Badge London Guide and a highly experienced lecturer throughout the South-East.
