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)
