Kit presented a talk in April 2013 to the
Dorset Land Rover Club
"My Life on Wheels, the Land Rover way"

The story recalls the 15 Land Rovers Kit has owned over the
last 65 years, and all the world-wide travels he has done in them

Review by Andy Wilson, Editor 'Dorset Rover'
"... being an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, it was no surprise that Kit's images were brilliant, and as a Fellow of the
Royal Geographical Society, Kit was able to speak with authority,
knowledge and experience about some far-flung destinations."
"Kit's words and pictures were inspiring, interesting, educative and
thoroughly enjoyable. What also came across was his empathy
with the people that he met and photographed on his travels,
but more than anything else, my abiding memory was
Kit's sheer zest for travel, challenge and life in general".

Kit's recent 'Desert Talk in Dorset' was held in November
last year It was a grand success with over 100 guests.
Thank you for all your enthusiastic reponses.

It was a multi-media talk with slides, music and
commentary about one of the great raids
of the Long Range Desert Group in 1941.

Other lectures are in the course of preparation.
