Shipmates, quick update on timings for the lorry naming event taking place at the Coventry Sea Cadets on Sat 14 Jan 17. The ceremony will commence at 1130 sharp, I will personally be there around 1030 in order to meet others and determine the procedure etc. I understand a buffet lunch will be provided afterwards before departing. I hope to see some of you there in support, a few have already confirmed to me as such.

Finally, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Take care shipmates.

Yours Aye - Chairman

Initially through Mick Daniels but bottom line is:

We have been contacted recently by an ex-matelot named Malcolm Wright who, with his son Simon, runs a Haulage / Freight firm. See website below, you see why they have named the company Diamond freight:

+ local story nd-freight-names-lorries-navy/story-22761912-detai l/story.html#1

They are now in the process of naming new vehicles after Falkland ships, already named one Glamorgan and planning Coventry next on Sat 14 Jan 2017 at the Coventry Sea Cadets facility, timings to follow shortly. The lorry will have the ships name + silhouette + crest + wording dedicating it to the lost 19 shipmates.
On behalf of us all I thanked them and said it was a very kind and humbling gesture and that as Chairman I would attend with Margaret and Mick Daniels for the ceremony with the Standard and hopefully as many as us as possible will join us for the event.

I understand travel is an issue but perhaps some more local shipmates can join us. Please let me know if you intend to come along and support this gesture.

Any questions call me or email me as usual.

Yours Aye - Chairman
