Thanks again Dave for good pictures ! I missed all the Victorious items on my visit, but it was mainly a trip to check out issues for our October visit, I must see if that train will be available !
 On a more somber note there will a lot more names on the memorial now, and counting !!
 
I am hoping that the 39-45 association may agree to us collaborating with them on their memorials in some way, I think they may, judging from conversations at the sub rededication. I think our sec is following this up. Suggestions for issues relating to the October Memorial visit would be welcomed by the Soc sec (stoker Stan)

Excellent bit of work by the mason's, very fitting.
Given the current state of the nation and the huge budget deficits. It looks like this may be the last carrier we will ever see completed
One small problem being Granite will it float???

    Along with Crash the (photo taker) my wife and I were also at the ceremony, and the Padre sprayed enough holywater over the monument, that I reckon if needs be the thing will fly !!

Friday 6 June 2014
A commemorative service to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy Landings will be held at the National Memorial Arboretum on Friday 6th June.

The Normandy Landings – codenamed Operation Neptune - were the landing operations of the Allied invasion of Normandy which took place on 6 June 1944.  It was the largest seaborne invasion in history and began the offensive of German-occupied Western Europe, which led to an Allied victory in the Second World War.

The service will include a wreath laying, and a silence, at the Normandy Veterans Memorial. The Bolesterstone Male Voice Choir will also be perfomring outside the Visitor Centre after the service.

Venue: The Millennium Chapel Time: 10.45am

  St Georges Day at the NMA went off well as usual. The weather was kind and this year as most of you will know we had a special talk from Captain Quinn telling us about the Naval Services Memorial, conception and manufacturing. Despite my original misgivings about a large muliticoloured set of glass sails. On viewing the Memorial, I have to say its excellent. I think now other future memorials will be judged by how they compare, this creation does make a statement, and is a thing of beauty, particulaly when viewed with the sun shining through the panes, I am assured that it projects a remarkable vision across the base area at sun rise and sunset.

   I was particularly pleased to see our shipmate Lt. Hoult in attendance, despite not being in full health, and it was noted that he was wearing his recently awarded Artic star medal, (a decoration well earned)
     Thanks again for all who attended, (even those who drank my rum).  Hope to see lots more in Coventry in October.

   That paint job looks just as good as I would expect from ex Victorious sailors.

        I am assuming that Crash had a hand in the job ? possibly Topsey may have been involved ??

            Anyway just to let you know that my house is in desperate need of an out side painting job, muster in Leeds before the weather gets bad (or worse),
I do not expect the job (only take you a few days) to be done FOC, no way shipmates, there will be a full tot to each of you , (on completion).


  ps that's only if you do a good job of course.

   Thanks for the picture Dave, not sure why we are having this in the Arboretum ? but I suspect we will see worse to come in the near future.

   The original concept that I understood the arboretum was aiming for,seems to have been lost somewhere  "A place for quiet reflection to remember departed service personnel lost since the end on WW2 "     Did I get it wrong ?  I hope our tree survives !! I think little else will. 

                          Keep your eye on the place Crash.

The gathering to remember shipmates who have Crossed the Bar. Always on St. Georges Day ....All welcome in fact it would be nice to have a few more gathered there to drink a tot to our friends now absent. Big thanks to those who made the effort especially Crash for his work on the bench and the photo's
