Princess Elettra’s Book

For those attending the 1997 Annual Re-Union and Lunch when Prince Guglielmo Giovanelli Marconi was President, his Mother, Princess Elettra, announced that she was in the process of translating and completing a book her late-Mother The Marchesa Cristina Marconi had written on her life with our Founder Marchese Guglielmo Marconi.

Princess Elettra

Well, we have heard from Princess Elettra that after many months of translations, additions etc., the book is now ready for publication in the USA and will be ready in the United Kingdom early 2000.  The cost will be approximately £20 It covers many chapters and is well documented, complete with many photographs.  Some Marconi Veterans have already advised their requirements.  We will be contacting them in due course to find out if they still want a, copy and, if so, the required payment. For others who have not already intimated their requirement, please drop a line to our Secretary.

This Newsletter has been compiled and edited by Peter Turrall MBE who would be delighted to receive inputs for next year’s issue.  He can he contacted through the Marconi Veterans Office at BAE SYSTEMS, Research Centre, West Hanningfield Road, Great Baddow, Chelmsford, Essex. Tel: 01245 242345.
