Insecurity Guards and Lady Emma Hamilton

Lady Hamilton at the Maritime Museum, Greenwich

This is a bit of a rubbish post as it is very late. Insecurity Guards, have you heard of them?  Well, I cannot tell you tonight, but I think it's fair to say that they have nothing to do with Lady Emma Hamilton except for the word 'insecurity' in their name and the tittle of the lecture advertised below. Am I right, ,Danni and Graham?
How come mosaicing Carrie Reichardt's house comes into the equation, I won't tell you tonight either. :-)
Insecurity and Ruin: The final years of Emma Hamilton 
Thursday 23 March 2017 11am - 12.30pm
This lecture focuses on the closing chapter of Emma Hamilton's life and the years when she experienced financial ruin and a rapid demise from lauded celebrity to social exile. Dr Hannah Greig explores what Emma's fate tells us about the social codes that operated in late 18th-century Britain revealing the unwritten codes and rules that were eventually Emma's undoing. Dr Hannah Greig is a lecturer in 18th century British History at the University of York and an established consultant to film, theatre and TV, with recent credits including Poldark series 1-3. She is a contributor to the exhibition catalogue.
