NEW MEMBERSHIP FEES FROM 2021

    Single                    $75

    Concession             $50

Members please note: These fees are still much lower than many comparable Associations.  

At the January meeting of the Council of the HSNT it was decided to increase membership fees from 2021.  This decision was not taken lightly. Many members will remember our peripatetic years - from Winnellie to Parap to Burnett house. Lots of effort, rent, Health and Safety concerns, and access problems but now we have our own permanent home. This, of course involves cost. Below is an analysis of 2019 costs which are essential and unavoidable.

The Journal cost is close to $30 per member which uses most of the income from current membership.

CONGRATULATIONS TO

Emeritus Professor Alan Powell

 

Alan Powell’s World’s End: British military outposts in the ‘ring fence’ around Australia 1824-1849 [Australian Scholarly Publishing P/L 2016] was announced as a runner-up for the 2017 Frank Broeze Memorial Maritime History Book Prize in the latest Signals of the Australian National Maritime Museum:

 

This work explores the British effort to establish a ‘ring fence’ of fortifications in disparate and largely unsettled parts of the Australian continent as deterrent to the encroachment by other European powers. As one judge commented, the book ‘extends its scope beyond the forts which are its immediate concerns to a social history of those who manned them including, where possible, the women who accompanied the garrison’. Considerable attention is also given to the Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander populations on whose lands these defensive installations were founded. “Exhaustively researched and extensively documented”, noted one judge, “this work is likely to remain the standard work in the field”.
