Shipmates,

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:
www.diamond-freight.com

+ local story

http://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/etruria-s-diamo 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

Shipmates families and friends, just a short reminder.

I can now confirm we have enough orders for the 35th Anniversary Flask and Tot bottle sets (described earlier) to make an order in time for next May. Before doing so I will wait a few more weeks, so please let me know if you wish to purchase one. Price is 46.00 for Flask, Tot bottle (charged), in nice presentation box.

Any questions just call me or email me.

Thoughts today of Frankie Armes. I knew Frankie on the London and we both moved onto the FFS in Excellent. He got a dream draft as he thought to the Cov, Ironic as I\'m a Cov kid myself and would\'ve loved have followed him there too. Sadly missed top top lad. RIP
