EDWARD WILSON'S PIPE RETURNS HOME
We're happy to announce that Edward Wilson's smoking pipe was purchased by The Wilson museum, it will be displayed in June, in Wilson's home town of Cheltenham.
“Engraved with Wilson’s initials, the pipe was discovered among possessions at Hooton Pagnell Hall in South Yorkshire where his older brother, Bernard, had worked as the estate manager.
David Wilson, the explorer’s great-nephew, said he was “very excited” that one of his great-uncle’s pipes was going on display.”
