Just a quick request to one and all that if you are indeed attending at this year\'s Reunion/Remembrance on Sat 25th May in Coventry, then can I request you let me know. We intend to arrange a light finger buffet again for the evening at the Warwick Club(Cov RNA) and I will need an accurate idea of numbers for the caterers.

To that end please pass your details directly to me using usual email address:

All 25th May details are under the Reunion tab adjacent and should you have any questions please contact me.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Final confirmation re the Tree and Plaque dedication ceremony to take place at midday on Sunday 10th March 2013 at the NMA in the Naval Review area adjacent to the WRENS Garden. No dress code, outside so dress accordingly, being there to witness is good enough.

No more from me on this event but just to say I hope you will make every effort to join us and also spread the word to others you may be in contact with in case they do not regularly view this website.

See you in March - I hope

Shipmates et al - 2 Jan 2013

Happy New Year to you all and lets hope it is a prosperous one and that this dit finds you all in good health.

Just a quick note to confirm that the planned dedication ceremony for our tree and plaque at the National Memorial Aboretum is scheduled for Sunday 10th March at around midday. It will be a simple and short service led by myself and our very own \'Bish\' Martin Kirkbride. Specific catering will not be organised etc due to costs but there is of course the local facilities available for any of us to use in the restaurant/cafe visitor centre area where most requirements can be met without prior arrangement.

It would be good to see as many of us there as possible but I do understand the travel issues etc. for such a short service. As long as a few of us are in attendance to witness the dedication that will be fine. Naturally, once I have the precise location details they will be published and then anyone can visit at any time in the coming months and years.

I will place a final agenda here in the next few weeks for those that will be attending.

Meanwhile, take care and be lucky.

On Thursday last week I attended a service of rededication for a copse of Beech trees planted in 1982 to remember those who lost their lives in the Falklands. 258 Beech trees were planted and can be found opposite The Centurian pub on Portsdown Hill facing the harbour from where many of those who died last left. The service was well attended with many veterans present on a really cold morning. The Lord Lieutenant of Hampshie Dame Mary Fagin attended with Civic dignatories from all the neighbouring boroughs and some families of those who died. You might like to take a look when next in the area. Happy Christmas to everyone, see you next year at the reunion in Coventry Regards
