The Friends are happy to welcome France’s new Consul-General Monsieur Eric Berti to Sydney and Australia. Monsieur Berti as both a Frenchman and a Navy person, has already shown a keen interest in the Laperouse Museum and the monuments on the La Perouse headland. The Friends are looking forward to renewed and fruitful cooperation with the Sydney Consulate and with the French Embassy in Canberra (Photos: Consul-General at Receveur Grave; with Theodore Arfaras and Bill Land with John Winch Tapestry; with bust of Laperouse; Unpacking the Altar Stone; with Danny, Cam Dezarnaulds, Bill Land; a room with a view but without Laperouse)
