Despite the miserable weather a good size audience heard the fascinating tale of a Liskeard Union Workhouse Resident who had sailed to the Artic in HMS Resolute in search of Sir John Franklin's ill fated ships, lost in their quest to locate a North West Passage. The Resolute became ice-bound and was abandoned by the crew, including Liskeard man George Lower. An American whaling ship discovered the Resolute some years later and towed it back their home port, where it was refitted and returned as a good will gesture to Queen Victoria. The timbers from the Resolute were eventually used to make several desks, one of which was presented to the US President and is still in use in the Oval Office to this day. Researched and presented by Liskeard OCS archivist Jackie Jenkins.
