My thoughts this morning are of my shipmates we left on patrol 38 years ago.

Not a single day goes by that I do not think of 25 May 1982. That final valiant action of D118 changed so many lives but we that survived will never forget, must never forget. This evening we will once again come together in Remembrance and honour our shipmates.

Thinking also of those families and friends of our shipmates and those that have crossed the bar along the years since. God bless them all.

Dear shipmates

ZOOM Update to ealier dit below:

Some are asking about what software to download, answer is you dont need to download anything. The invitation link I will send will do all that for you at the time of logging in to the call. All I need from you is your itention to take part and the email address you will use to take part. I will forward the invite and link nearer the time along with the abbreviated order of service for you all to follow what Martin and I will deliver.

We have now had a couple of test runs and all looks to work fine so hopefully we can hold our service as planned, which will be great. Please pass the word on to other shipates you are in touch with, they may not be aware of the intention to do this.

Any questions just call me/email me.

Stay safe out there shipmates.
