THIS MONTH'S SPEAKER: MICHAEL LAYLAND, SEPTEMBER 27
Never Say Die! The ups and downs of Philip Hankin.
Hankin first came to Victoria in 1858 as a junior officer aboard the survey ship, HMS Plumper. He escorted Lady Frankin to the gold fields and even cooked a fish curry for the Queen of Hawaii. After a 14-year, roller-coaster career that included arriving on-foot and penniless in Barkerville, he retired having served as acting governor of the province British Columbia. In an active retirement, he was secretary to a duke. This included experiencing India at the height of the Raj, when he befriended the Prince of Wales.
