Naval History / Do you hear there?

Stan has sent me (rather circuitously) a selection of audio recordings from an ex-commander of the Vic. These are now on the site, and over the next few days I'll try to add them all into a dedicated page on the main site.  If anyone has any information or pictures from this time would they contact me so that I can "flesh out" the page.

The recordings are all in .mp3 format and can be downloaded or played on most computers. They can even be transferred to ipods and personal mp3 players.

Frank Lampard will no longer be gracing these shores!

He looked a little like this....

There's been quite a few new sign ups lately, not sure what's going on, but I'll tighten a few things up.

Are you sure of the date Stan?

Limbu RAMBAHADUR received the VC for valour in Borneo.

Hi All,

I've been sent a copy of this book from the publishers and I wonder whether we should auction it off for the 70th anniversary reunion.

It tells the story of the Australia war brides travelling on Victorious in 1946.

Any takers? Put your bids here and I'll send the book out via post.

Happy New year to all. I've just got up from my nightshift - New Year in A&E is always a great feeling!

Anyway, wishing you all great success in all your ventures with the Association - make it a great birthday for the old girl.

Today's Navy / Re: A Grand old Chap called Louis
« on: November 04, 2008, 03:19:33 PM »

Many, many thanks for taking the time out to visit Louis. I just wonder how many other veterans will have no one but their departed comrades to keep them company this Sunday? Maybe it's time to start a "Visit a veteran" campaign. I'll certainly make sure any veterans I see at work this weekend are thanked.

OK, it's a blatant plug for one of my sites, but RNA 10 Area has just published the Autumn edition of their magazine Vanguard.

The Current issue hilights the role of the Naval contingent at Basrah, as well as articles on HM Ships Ganges, Clyde and Norfolk, as well as the loss of the "Delhi". Shiny copies can be obtained via the Area Secretary on 0161 748 6681, but just to pique your interest - previous copies can be downloaded by clicking on the magazine covers. Each file is about 1.5 Mb (.pdf format)

Hope you enjoy.

The previous copy, will be available online later tonight.

Welcome aboard Taffj,

Could you let me know what the problem is with the guest book, it all seems to be working at my end.

I've asked around and the info I've got is this...

Na1 AH3 T.M.Craig L/F967938 26th May 1959. Who was Tragically Killed. On Hms Victorious. When he wrongly moved over the cat. In a port/starboard Launch Procedure of a 3 figure Sea Vixen Launch. The pilot of the Sea Vixen was L/T John Bovey Cary RN. Who wrote to the family ,at the time of their loss

Hope this is of some use.

getting pictures out of a digital camera is really easy. In fact even Stokers can do it.

See, that's how to get those pesky pictures out of the camera!

Actually, if you have a card reader slot on the computer then just place the card in and let windows do the rest, there will be a dialogue box to "Import pictures". Once they are on the computer, why not open a Fotopic account (don't worry, I know you're from Yorkshire, it's free!)
