Napoleon and Small islands

by admin Email

I had an interesting prolonged internet trawl over the last couple of days. It goes to show how you can be taken on some interesting journeys...

It started with a nice facebook picture (not sure how I got there..) of Elba:

I then read about Elba at Wikipedia

This made mention of Napoleon's first exile there. Click through to his subsequent exile on Saint Helena:

Thence to the other remote islands connected with Saint Helena: Tristan da Cunha and Ascension

Found an interesting history of Tristan da Cunha, that details almost every month for 100 years, with almost every expedition to Inaccessible as well

Very coincidentally I was visiting East Grinstead hospital today, and the nurse came from Ascension Island!!
