what events are planned?
Meet and Greet | Friday Evening
Attendees start arriving Friday afternoon for an informal meet-
The AGM | Saturday Morning
After breakfast, the Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday morning and a gala dinner the same evening. The AGM and the association are particularly happy to see newer attendees take part. The meeting will discuss the following year’s reunion and the current state of the association. We will also be discussing Bob Taylor and Ian Hurley’s decision to stand-
Sightseeing | Saturday Afternoon
Once the AGM is concluded attendees usually gather at around 11:00hrs for a visit to the local area. Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is only a short walk away from the the Royal Maritime Club so it is expected that many attendees will drift in that direction or visit local pubs remembered from their time in service.

This year the dinner will be hosted at the Warrant Officer’s & Senior Rate’s mess, HMS Nelson. Full details of the menu will be posted in due course.
