Sherlock Holmes strode into the room “…a huge barbed-headed spear tucked like an umbrella under his arm.”


What as Watson’s reaction?


Let us travel to Woodman’s Lee to investigate the murder of Captain Peter Carey who was found in his ship-like cabin …”pinned like a beetle on a card.”

A harpoon, a tobacco pouch and a notebook with the initials C.P.R.

Join the Stormy Petrels as we discuss “The Adventure of Black Peter”

This adventure is reprinted in the book “Dangerous Work” ACD’s Diary of his adventures on a whaler in the Arctic.


What is the connection between Peter Carey and stormy petrels?

Bonus question:

Who was referred to as a “ribston pippin of a man? What is a ribston pippin?

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 7th at 7:00 pm at our usual Hampton Place.
