Endeavour on TV Again

Since the last issue the television programme, filmed by a camera crew on board Endeavour for the Yesterday TV channel series Find my Past, has been broadcast. Three people were featured in the programme including LuLu Alexandra from Leigh. LuLu's great-uncle, Leslie Osborne lost his life aboard Renown on the return from Dunkirk. LuLu's father, Trevor Osborne a life member of the Endeavour Trust, owns one of today's modern cockle boats - Renown IV.

In some ways this episode was a bit disappointing, particularly because there were major factual errors in the history of the event recalled, and how it involved the Leigh boats. Perhaps next time we should ask for some editorial input to ensure historical accuracy!
