No­bel Ital­ian

The Advertiser - - LETTERS -

RE­GARD­ING the ar­ti­cle “Sal­vage of Ti­tanic icon” (The Ad­ver­tiser, yes­ter­day), bravo that his­tory is not lost.

A fed­eral judge in the US rules a sal­vage firm can re­trieve the Mar­coni wire­less tele­graph ma­chine that broad­cast dis­tress calls from the sink­ing Ti­tanic ocean liner in the early hours of April 15, 1912.

Ital­ian in­ven­tor, and joint No­bel prize win­ner of 1909 for physics, Guglielmo Mar­coni’s in­ven­tion and devel­op­ment of wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion was an im­por­tant step for mankind.

We must en­cour­age in­ven­tion, ideas and so­lu­tions and those in­di­vid­u­als who forge ahead and are not de­terred by oth­ers.

They do some­thing worth­while with their lives through war, peace and plague.

CLAU­DIA TREGONING (nee MAR­CONI), South Plymp­ton
