Sad news.CPO Capt Burne was a very approachable man always made time to speak to his ships company at any time of the day about any subject.Probably responsible for my nickname which lasted throughour my Naval career and is still used today.
Hope all well with you Mick,still an avid PNE fan?

Probably the most approachable skipper i ever had, once he asked me if i was in love.when i told him that i did have a girlfriend ,his reply -i thought thats why your late most mondays and if your late again you will be going on an unpleasant holiday,point was taken

I would just like to add my dit to all the other entries here. Thank you Chris and the association committee for putting in so much effort to ensure this 30th reunion went well. You all clearly worked hard to ensure a smoothly run and memorable weekend.

As you will all know by now I have now handed over the Treasurers job to Brian “Smudge” Smith who will do a fantastic job I am sure, and assist in taking the association to the next level. Thanks to everyone for their support and guidance while I held the position.

Finally, I would just like to say what an honour it was to march through Old Portsmouth with my Coventry shipmates. I honestly feel proud to be a part of this second family.

Best wishes to all.
