Dear shipmates, families and friends of D118 First, I sincerely hope you are all faring ok in this strange world we live in now. Like many of you no doubt, Margaret and I are both thankful we have a garden to use and get stuck into many of the projects we had planned for this year, but cant wait to get back to normal. As you all know, having had to cancel this year’s Remembrance/Reunion, it is with great anticipation to offer anyone of you that wishes to join a service of Remembrance at 1800 on Monday 25 May 2020 using ZOOM. Mark Whitney suggested the idea to me some weeks ago, closely followed by Martin Kirkbride. To that end we have tested the ZOOM system out and I feel it will certainly do for a Plan B. So we will go ahead and run it. Please note that I will be doing a toast and up spirits at the end so have your glasses charged and ready for that! Due to security issues, if you wish or intend to join the service you will need to email your intention directly to me. Subsequently, the ‘Invitation to Join’ will be forwarded to all participants on those same email addresses nearer the 25 May. Some of you will no doubt be aware of ZOOM but for those (like me) who have not used it, it is very simple to follow the instructions and take part, honest. Either on smart phone or PC/Mac etc. The service will be run by myself and Martin as usual and Mark will manage the ZOOM conferencing tool in the background and make sure things run smoothly. Please can I also ask that you disseminate this event to anyone you are in touch with who I may have missed out in the emails forwarded and perhaps is not looking at the website either. Thanks for that shipmates. So, email me and lets do this for our shipmates! Stay safe everyone Chairman – Chris Howe MBE

Stay safe wherever you are in the world. We have gone through so much as a unit that we can get through this together. Currently sat on my cruise ship in Dover harbour waiting for the operational pause to be lifted. Can anyone help me, I believe one of the old Covs is now working for UK Border Force, any information on who or how to contact would be much appreciated.

Cancellation of t the Act of Remembrance and Reunion at Coventry: The privilege of being Chaplain is one that I highly value and I will miss meeting up with everyone this year (and the P U afterwards). I know that everyone will be raising a glass on the 25th. and perhaps you may join me In also raising a prayer. If you are isolating, or this whole Covid-19 issue raises any problems/issues for you, please don't hesitate to phone or txt me 07746519311. Although chaplaincy visiting is discouraged I am available to visit should you or your family find themselves in distressing situations, including bereavements. This applies to anywhere in mainland UK. Yours aye, Martin
