We are pleased to announce that this year we will be holding at least one event in Plymouth in June and possibly a second at St Peters' Martindale in the Lake District to mark the 82nd anniversary. With the easing of restrictions we are pleased to announce a return to HM Naval Base Devonport, for the remembrance service at St Nicholas and access to the Senior Rates Mess for refreshments and chance to socialise.
