Yes indeed, you are an asset Patrick, and I can assure you we are all grateful for your willingness to represent us.

I have to say that it did cross my mind that this would be an excellent opportunity to nick some of the "good stuff" for your collection. Will you be taking a suitcase ?

Many thanks, Stu

I am pleased to announce that Bob Ball (PWSTS 1941) has been approached by the Merchant Navy Association with an invitation to read an extract from the Kohima Epitaph at this years M.N. Remembrance Day Service at Tower Hill. Bob has accepted their invitation and the PWSTS is extremely proud that this honour has been bestowed on one of our Old Boys. History is in the making. Well done Bob.

12.jpg12.jpg

Bob Ball was originally going to lay the PWSTS wreath but he is unable to do this now as he wont be able to stand in the sunken garden. Would anyone like to volunteer to lay the PWSTS wreath?

Please find below a letter received from the Sailors Society. Those of you attending last year will remember the littlie red dusters containing messages planted by the Sea Cadets at the end of the service. If you would like to become involved this year please download the PDF files below. When you send off your form please mention the PWSTS.

Following on from the success of last year, we would like to invite you to become involved with our Sea of Remembrance appeal, making available to you red ensign flags for planting at Trinity Gardens Tower Hill on 7th September.

I have attached a sample of the mailing and perhaps you could let me know how many of these you might like to distribute to your members.

We would be grateful for your support and I am sure that as many of your members may attend this service it would be good to have their involvement.

Message from Steve Tester

Graham 'Goody' Goodsell is on the list of those attending MN Day. He is coming up from Melbourne to see his relatives in Rye in August. Then on Friday he is staying with me in Eastbourne for a Friday night beer. On Saturday we are going up to London and meet up with Dave McKay. So my question is, is anyone else meeting up on the Saturday 5th, or are we going to have to have a drink on our own?
 
All the best,
 
Steve Tester
B5SJT@aol.com

If you would like to meet up please email Steve as above and also mention so on the forum. Thank you - Andy

Hi Andy & all attending Tower Hill, in case you are not aware, there are extensive travel restrictions around the area due to a cycle race held on the same day. The following link, which I took the liberty of using from the MNA site, may be of interest.

http://www.mna.org.uk/Images/TOWER%20HILL%20TRAVEL%20RESTRICTIONS.pdf

Best wishes to everyone attending, wish I could be there, have a great day.

As I am not able to attend Tower Hill this year, I will be going to Liverpool with the MNA Runcorn Branch wearing my PWSTS badge & tie. So we will have a presence there albeit a very small one.

The service starts at 1200hrs. at ST. Nicholas Church ( The sailors church) followed by a short march to the memorial at Pierhead. Then on to the Eldonian Club for a free buffet and cheap bar.

If there are any northern members not able to go to Tower Hill, I don't have to tell you that you would be most welcome to join us behind the Runcorn Branch Standard.

Good luck to all wherever they attend.

Glancon
