Join our Royal Navy reunion

How many of your readers would like to turn the clock back? Especially if is to when they were in the Royal Navy and serving on the ‘warship’ Hitler tried to sink during World War II?

This is HMS Collingwood at Fareham in Hampshire. Would they like to pay a visit back into that massive shore training establishment?

The HMS Collingwood Association is looking for those who either loved or loathed the place to turn the clock back and join us on our next visit. Association visits of the past have included a parade, a buffet, lunch in the wardroom, visits to the training sections and simulators. More visits are planned.

Write now to the Membership Secretary Peter Lacey, Heathfield, Lapford, Crediton, Devon. EX17 6PZ or email him placey58@btinternet.com

Do you have a story to tell about your time at HMS Collingwood which other members may recognise when printed in the Association Magazine? Send it to Peter with your application form and he will forward it to the editor.

With new members on the committee, the association is growing, don’t get left behind. I look forward to meeting you at the next visit into HMS Collingwood or weekend reunion and reliving those days. Bring this letter with you and I will buy you a tot!
