Hi Chaps,

I have only just found out about your Tree and Plaque dedication on Sunday 10th March. As I lost friends on Coventry, I would have liked to have been there to join you. I will be at the SAMA (82) reunion weekend, part of which is a church Service in Derby Cathedral at 1045 on that same day and the coaches do not leave the Cathedral for the NMA until 1145 at the earliest. If you could hhang on until about 1215 for our coaches to arrive, then that would be appreciated by me and the rest of the SAMA Members who would like to support your dedication service. (The HMS Glamorgan Association is also dedicating a bench at the NMA on the same day. Neither of these events are listed anywhere on the SAMA (82) website or Forums). Best wishes, I may see some of you when the SAMA Coaches arrive.

I worked at Cammell Lairds and help launch the HMS Coventry.While being built there was a small contingent of naval personnel who where involved in overseeing the out fitting stages. I bought a ship crest off one of the ratings and gave it to my father, it has hung in the living room for the past 30 odd years. My Dad past away recently and I was wondering if the crest was of any use to any association or club.
Could anyone please advise?
Best Regards

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.

Yours Aye - Chairman
