The cat has the helm

It’s the anniversary of the birth of Royal Navy explorer Matthew Finders, honoured by the South Australian university which bears his name. To mark the date the university’s Gillian Dooley  reports on the record of cat, Trim RN, who circumnavigated Australia in 1801-03, assisted by Commander Flinders.

It’s good to see Trim restored to rightful memory on deck – in 2015 the university changed the name of its student information service from “Ask Trim” to “Ask Flinders.”
