A run ashore / Reunion 2019. Britannia Coventry,(not city of culture this year.)
« Last post by stokerstan on November 13, 2018, 11:23:07 PM »
   We have had no suggestions for an alternative venue for the 2019 Reunion,so a provisional booking has been lodged with our friend Stacey at the Britannia for the usual week-end do.
     
                 Seems a long time off, but we have claimed the usual week-end (first week-end in October)--- 4th-5th-6th October 2019.  Details to follow, but hopeful of same rates as last year.



    Watch this space.

    A slightly slim lined F.T. has now gone out !!

    However, at this years reunion we obtained a volunteer editor, (one who knows what he is doing), our printer has again offered his services in printing the mag ! so hopefully we are rolling again.

  What we need is Victorious material, or material about Victorious men. There must be piles of stuff out there, please forward it in any format to either stoker Stan or Topsey. addresses and email in last Flat top.

We will see that it gets to the editor.
  What did you do after Vic ? what did you do on Vic. Do you remember joining Vic. What was good/ not good about the ship. Who do you remember on her.

     LETS HAVE IT PLEASE.

Well we got it printed and out eventually. I thought it may get a couple of nominations for the old Pulitzer prize thing, but I have heard nothing from them yet !! there's time !!
 Ok. maybe not, I have heard it said that it rather looks like this edition was done by a stoker ..... hey ! anyway I have burnt out now and am suffering from writers block, so Dough Hotchkiss junior
who I am advised is a skilled editor will don the mantle of FLAT Top editor. He will edit it and send the stuff to me on a memory stick, our usual printer will do the print job.
    Shipmates a heavy weight has been lifted off my tired shoulders, (it was the computer end that got me... I don't know how to use one ).

     I will be in contact with our new editor shortly,but have promised him that we will provide the material for him to edit ! Start composing chaps or you may get the rubbish I dished up and it would serve you right !!   Watch this space for instructions on how to get your hot material to me or Ed.   Stoker Stan signing off for now.
