    Po Hosteu ime i danas nosi otok koji je na ulazu u Višku luku. Mada su Britanci na otoku bili kratko njihov utjecaj je poprilično vidljiv.

    Britanci su na Visu bili i tijekom drugog svjetskog rata…….a u počast poginulima, svake godine Britanski veterani posjete Vis.

    For Dario Sušanj
    I am most interested to have discovered your site and find it most extraordinary that a Croatian should want to pay my country such a compliment by writing with such enthusiasm about us!

    We have been privileged to own a small old stone house in Kut, on the beautiful unspoilt island of Vis. Nearly 8 years ago we accepted an invitation from a Croatian friend of my son to stay with him, and my wife immediately fell in love with the island. For her it was the wonderful spiritual energy and natural beauty of the island. But for me, I was amazed and excited to discover that my country had been here before and that most people seemed to think that we had made a positive contribution to the lives of the local people while we were here.

    So when I discovered that this year would be the last year in which the British veterans would be returning to commemorate their fallen comrades from World War II – their 28th consecutive visit – and that it also coincided with the 200th anniversary of Capt Sir William Hoste’s epic victory over our old and traditional enemy, the French(!), I was determined to do something to mark these two occasions.

    And so, coinciding with visits by the Croatian Minister of Defence, Dr Davor Božinović, the British Ambassador, and two senior military officers, I decided to organise two events which would try to bring alive the story of what life was like on Vis with the British, first during World War II and, secondly, during Capt Hoste’ s time 200 years ago.

    The events dully took place last Tuesday 17th and Thursday, 19th, and an exhibition of 11 prints celebrating Capt Sir William Hoste’s epic victory on 13th March 1811 and published by our National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, remains open in the Reading Room at Komiza, on Vis until 28th May 2011. I notice you have reproduced two of the same in your article above.

    Transcripts of the lectures on “Vis in World War 2” and “Life on Vis at the time of Hoste” given by Mrs Gordana Tudor, principal curator of your own National Maritime Museum, Split, are available in both Croatian and English, If anyone would like a copy please do not hesitate to get in touch.
