  Hey, we are now in August, have you booked yet ??

   Anything for the AGM ? let the Hon Sec have it for his agenda.

          Anyone with any contacts at the M.O.D. ..... just let them nknow that we would like an invite to have a look at this new carrier that seems to be in the water now.
 They may need a reminder that we of the the Victorious were the last of the "real" carrier men, with proper aircraft a flat flight deck and lots of steam.

   Take Care out there, good men are getting in short supply from what I can tell. See you in Coventry.

 Owing to a family bereavement I was unable to make it down to Pompey to see Arthurs cheque being handed over to the hospital.
   However the event went ahead without me, and I am assured my absence was not noted to any great degree, and the event was conducted with due dignity the way 
Arthur would have wanted it.

   As previously circulated, there will be a few of us meeting up in the Ship and Castle pub(over the road from the main dockyard gate, round the corner from The Home Club as was, now the Maritime Club).
 
  We should be in the Pub soon after 1200, following a visit to the hospital to hand in a cheque in memory of Arthur. Informal meet, a tot and a toast, all welcome.

      I shall be there. Take Care   Stan

  1200 hrs ish.  TUESDAY 18TH JULY  POMPEY.

   No more wise cracks about our splendid Navy and the new ship !!! If we are to stand any chance of getting an invite to the Hooly that is bound to happen in Pompey when the beast eventually makes it down to the dockyard (fully worked up). We must strive to inveigle our association into their good books. So if the captain needs any advice or assistance on the right and proper way to operate an aircraft carrier then we must be prepared to go the extra yard and lend a hand. I can imagine how difficult it will be for some of these young chaps when they are expected to sling a hammock for the first time!! or how to get their dobying done when they cannot find a doby bucket, its little things like this that they may turn to us for help. I bet there will be hardly anyone on board who knows how to play uckers or crib,and how could we expect them to get through eighteen months of sea time without an expert on the ship who knows about the "sods opera" songs.? The list is long, and its sort of our duty to help these fine young chaps,who I have heard are "T" to a man, so they may well be in the market for a skilled rum bosun ?
          Well just keep it in mind, I would hate to miss out on all the tea and sticky buns that will be handed out.

    Remember Victorious ...likes the modern navy XXXXX

Well our latest carrier puts to sea today. They are looking for a ships company to man it now and by 2022 we may get some planes to fly off if we can recruit a few pilots. ANY VOLUNTEERS?
