More on Major Rowland Raven-Hart

A recent comment by Horacio A Nigro of Montevideo, Uruguay, may have solved the mystery of the birthplace of Major Rowland Raven-Hart, whose Canoeing in Ireland covered several inland navigations in the 1930s. You can see Horacio’s comments, and the subsequent discussion, on my page here.

But, on his own site, Horacio has cast light on Rowland-Hart’s career in radio, working in South America between the Kaiser’s War and Hitler’s War, and he has also very kindly provided an English-language version here as a PDF.



New section

I have started a new section on People. So far, the top-level page links only to the first entry, which is for Major Rowland Raven-Hart OBE, whose Canoeing in Ireland, published in around 1938, is a short guide to canoeing on several of Ireland’s longer rivers, including the Shannon, the Erne, the Suir, the Barrow and the Munster Blackwater.

I have added such information about Major Raven-Hart as I have been able to find.
