Shipmates et al

Just a quick dit to remind everyone that next year\'s Remembrance/Reunion will be on Sat 25 May 2019 down in Portsmouth. Same routine as in previous years. We will muster at the Still and West for around 1700 and then parade to the FI Memorial site on the sea wall along the road in Old Portsmouth and after at the GIs Ass on Whaley. I will put up the full agenda later in the year but for now please put this down in your diaries.

Finally, I note a few dits just placed on here. It was sad to learn of the passing of my DO David Walton, a nice guy and the only official RN person that came to see me in Haslar whilst rest in peace David.

Also, on a warmer note it was good to see that Ginge Applegate has found our website. Ginge please consider joining us next year at the reunion on 25 May, would be good to see you again shipmate even though you were Starboard mess!

Any questions re any issues please do not hesitate to contact me as always. Take care

Further to Ginge A\'s comment, this from the President of the Type 42 Assoc:

It is with deep regret and a profound sense of personal sadness that I have to report the death of Lieutenant Commander David Walton (COVENTRY 1982; NEWCASTLE & YORK as SWO(U) to Capt D3) who died peacefully at home last Thursday. David and I joined the Navy together in Sep 1971 and served together on the staff of Capt D3, in the Fish Squadron in the late 1970s and both fought in the Falklands Campaign in 1982. He was a great friend and highly professional warfare officer; while I will miss his company enormously I will remember with fond memories the many years we served together. His death will be a tragic loss for his wife and daughters as well as for his many friends.

As yet I do not know of his funeral arrangements etc and will post those details here when they are known.

David - you went down to the sea in ships; you served your country in great waters; you have seen the works of the Lord and his wonders in the deep. May you now rest in His peace.
