With there being absolutely no chance of holding Re-union 19 on its scheduled date of Saturday 13th June, we invited all our members to raise a glass to Warship Wonderful at some time during the day, wherever they were, and the following is a selection of the photties we duly received. All comments by an anonymous correspondent!
First photty received...Nick Athawes relaxes on the patio - Nice big garden? Possible Re-union venue?
What's with the Ark Royal T-shirt Shipmate? Make sure you buy plenty of raffle tickets next year - you might win a prize!
Mark "Robbie" Robinson
Twas a misty day north of the border, and after sinking the best part of a bottle of Woods, Robbie crashed out behind the wall!
Smart and debonair, apart from the gopping Global T-shirt. Phil with D95 at an unknown location
...also raises a glass to the world famous sticky carpet in the Royal Naval School of Dancing, where he was a life member!
Paul "Red" Snape
With wife Alison and son, Connor. (Connor tried hard to sell his
parents raffle tickets for this fine family photo)...we didn't realise they were all that tall!
Catering King of the County!
Is that a West Ham badge in your man cave? - Oh dear!
After a 12 hour shift in his rack!
Wally - who prefers his bubbly straight from the bottle!
Tony "Tanky" Shingler
Smart shirt, Shipmate!
Wendy & Taff Coombs
Proof that the sun does shine, occasionally, in Welsh Wales!
