Find your old Royal Navy shipmates

editorial image

I am writing again in the hope of reuniting those who have served together in the Royal Navy.

My letters are often cut out and sent to someone who has served.

Many are missing the camaraderie of those who served in the Royal Navy, such as the eight already found from HMS Raleigh, 23 Entry Benbow Division, June 2, 1980.

If anyone wishes they could relive some of it, this can be done in the form of an RN Shipmates Reunion, to be held over the weekend of April 21 to 24 in the Midlands.

This includes a coach tour over the weekend and, of course, a tot issue.

Wives and partners are welcome, too.

There is no association nor annual subscription.

Just come and “swing the lamp” and find old shipmates.

For reunion details please contact me at, or at the address below (a stamp will help the pension if writing to me for reunion details).

The next move towards finding your old shipmate is yours.

Do it now!
