David Clover

A.J. West F.R.G.S. Gosport and Portsmouth's FIlm Pioneer 1897-1913

'Our Navy revived' - Talk by David Clover on Wednesday 3 October 2012 at the Regent Street Polytechnic's original cinema where 'Our Navy' was regularly presented from 1897 until 1912.

If you want to request a talk about Alfred West, please contact me. I have give such talks to the Royal Naval Museum, the National Maritime Museum as part of their 'Sea Britain' festival in 2005, the Diaper Heritage Association in Autumn 2006, Portsmouth Sailing Club in 2019 and online to the Gosport Heritage Open Day 14 September 2020 - (video available online).

It would take the form of an in-person or online video presentation using a computer projector.

It would be of interest to anyone who can make up a group that would like to know more about his work and life. It would last about 1 hour. Typically, groups interested in early cinema, Yachting history and vintage photography.

For in-person talks, travelling and expenses would be appreciated
