Hello to all! I would like to leave a message of condolence for Dave Swifts family!

Served with him on Flag Officer Flotilla one as WO,S. A dedicated Gunner to the core! Sadly taken from us far too early.

Hello Robby. Sadly, that is correct. I have the funeral details here for you:
Dave Swift's funeral service will take place on Friday 26 January at 12pm in St John the Baptist Church, Baston PE6 9PE. Afterwards there will be a short committal service at 2pm at Peterborough Crematorium.

We'll then be gathering at The White Horse in Baston (opposite the church). Please feel free to add something red to your outfit (like a handkerchief, scarf or socks) as it was Dave's favourite colour.

No flowers please but donations to the Royal British Legion in memory of Dave are very welcome.

Good Morning All,
Just thought I'd nip on here to promote the Branch Dinner to be held on 18 November. This is set to be another great Branch get together in Gods County. Get in touch with the Secretary Nick Thurston or any other Members of the Committee for further details.
Senior Branch of the Senior Service.
You know it makes sense.

Hi all nice to hear back with the association still active. Unfortunatly not on Facebook or any sort of media (still analouge not trainned for digital). But am trying to get into it, the enemy says she will drag me into it kicking and screaming.
Until then will keep up with serials on here and see whats on.
Thanks all keep your powder dry
Shady.

Hi Shady, the social calendar is getting some fixtures but naturally we're a little shy about posting them too early. Do you have any of the guys email addresses? I'm sure we could prize you out of the house for a visit down here? lol

Nice to see the WCGI still going strong, was a member back with Sam Potts, Wiggy Bennett (co op funeral director) and Chris Tremaine and many others. A long time ago when we all had hair and met up in the Senior Rates Mess HMS Drake.
Miss the banter, comeraderie and damm fine lads of the RN.

Hi Shady, we're still around and still enjoy this great association. Sam Potts is still a regular and Wiggy obviously loves the easy life so much, he's our Social Sec now he's retired!
Shame you're at Wales but keep an eye out on the page as we'll soon post a date for our 30 year anniversary Ladies Night which will be in June 2018. We're planning something special as it's a landmark which we're proud to approach so it'll definitely be worth a visit. Do you have a Facebook account and are you included in the Facebook page?

Good

I'm writting on behave of my late Father (CPO Eric Harding retired) who passed away last week. He was a GI at HMS Excellent during the 60s & 70s, and I believe he was a association member of the Portsmouth Branch until it closed. We intend to hold his funeral at The Oaks Havant Crematorium 3rd March 1300hrs, and we will celebrate his time in the Royal Navy with some of his old comrades. His ashes will scattered out in the Solent.
Regards
Chris Harding, his oldest son

Good Morning All. Tis true. I have been coerced back onto the Committee for a while which is nice. Kinda missed it if I am honest. It will be great getting amongst it again and hopefully maintaining the current momentum. I am looking forward to the forthcoming Dinner and hope to see those of you that read this there too. I am having to cut short a planned Scottish 500 epic bike ride to attend so no excuses please.
