The latest on the film \"Destroyer\" is that the production company are having to explore the finanacing a bit more and filming has not started yet so I cannot see it will hit the screen much before 2015, this has come form a reliable source in the heart of the organisation, they have been out to Malta to do some shooting or explore using one of the massive sea tanks out there used specifiacally for this type of scenario and some shooting was done on the former HMS EDINBURGH prior to lay up for a possible sale of the said b3 t42, which on the matter has now fallen through along with York and the gloucester being in the spares package slot, Its only a matter of time before we see al the remaining t42s in 3 basin on the disposal ground with sister ships MANCHESTER and LIVERPOOL, the only saving grace is that momentum is gathering pace for EDINBURGH to be purchased to go alongside the ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA at leith...we waith with baited breath...if I find out any more I will post on the site

Shipmates

As promised, I have arranged with Forever Jack to produce further HMS Coventry D118 ties as single one off sales. Anyone can now go direct to the Forever Jack website and make an individual order at 11.99 each. Take a look at the tie first:

I am also working on our own Lapel Pins which the Association will purchase and which I will then be able to sell during our next reunion in May.

Those on Facebook please spread the word re this latest dit on ties...Cheers

Take care

Shipmates et al

As promised and by popular request, I have spoken with Forever Jack, and can now confirm they are looking at setting up the Cov D118 Ass tie for us and will likely allow single/multi orders to be made direct with them from individuals. I will work with them on the same design as current ties and as near to the same colour, but good enough for govt work.

Once I have all in order I will let you all know via this forum, you will note I do not use Facebook....but there are plenty of you who do to carry messages across the gateway on my behalf (Steve and Bernie).

I will also look at Cov Pin Badges as well for next years reunion, more info as and when.

I trust this meets with approval.
