The P&O Liner SS Egypt sank off Brest in 1922. Amongst its cargo was £1million in gold. This talk will describe the salvage of the cargo, which was at a depth of 65 fathoms (400ft). The deepest known salvage until then was at 25 fathoms (150ft), so very few believed that recovery was possible ..… apart from a Swedish engineer called Peter Sandberg. His great-nephew, Neil Sandberg, will give a riveting account of the salvage.

Letter from the Ambassador congratulating the Society on its’ centenary.
If you need to get out and get a bit of exercise or you need to stay in and stay safe – the on-line treasure hunt with the theme of Slottsskogen can still be enjoyed.
The Anglo-Swedish Society of Gothenburg will celebrate it’s 100th anniversary in style and with as many friends as possible. Therefore, we will wait until social gatherings are safe again before celebrating our 100th. Watch this space!
Our book club has a MeetUp page MeetUp.com/ELBexA/. We have moved out meetings on-line so that we can continue to meet and discuss good books. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month starting at 18:30. There are usually about 8 to 10 people at any one meeting. Some people have discovered that they prefer to meet on-line and members who have moved away from Gothenburg can now still participate.
We have a summer recess and begin again in September.
