Eight Bells

The Naval War College Museum’s Eight Bells lecture series will present Alan Rems on “South Pacific Cauldron” on Thursday, June 11, at noon.

While Guadalcanal is familiar to most Americans and the Kokoda Trail is well known to Australians, the war in the South Pacific includes many now-forgotten operations that deserve to be remembered. Australia’s part in the Pacific war is barely mentioned in American history books. Rems brings the major Australian contribution to the fore, and recognizes the valuable part played by New Zealand forces in the Solomons campaign.

Advance reservations are required for civilian guests at least five work days prior to the event. For more information on the program and to reserve, call 401-841- 2102.

The Pawtucket Red Sox will salute the Armed Services during a game against the Rochester Red Wings on Thursday, June 25, beginning at 7:05 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for $5 at the Family Assistance Center, 541 Airport Road, Warwick. Call 401-275-1242 for more information.
