BEHIND THE BATTLE OF THE RIVER PLATE

Richard has made a particular study of this battle, and has lectured widely, gathering many anecdotes.

First of all, he will offer you a detailed, illustrated presentation on the events of the battle and the lives of those involved. Then he will arrange a special excursion for you telling the story behind the Battle of the River Plate, and escorting you in a private car or minibus to see the anchor, rangefinder and guns of the German pocket battleship Graf Spee.

You will see sites of interest such as the former British and German Legations, the British Residence (occupied by Mr. Eugen Millington-Drake) and visit the Maritime Museum with many relics of the battle, the cemeteries where German and British sailors are buried, the Anglican Church and monument to those who died, and take a drive to the hilltop above Montevideo where you will enjoy panoramic views of the city and see the point where the Graf Spee sank.
