Association Memorial Events 2021

We are pleased to announce that this year we will be holding at least one event in Plymouth in July to mark the 81st anniversary. We've had to move things from June to July, but it was felt that it was important to still mark the occasion, even if it was a little later than usual because of the timetable for the easing of restrictions.
The itinerary is as follows and feel free to join at any point.
For further info and for intention to come along, please can you contact our Hon. Chairman, David Emery MBE at the following email address:

St. Peters Martindale, Cumbria * Cancelled *

*Please note that due to the extension of Government restrictions, unfortunately we had no alternative other than to cancel this event*

Organised by John Clarke, there will be a service and refreshments at St Peter's Church overlooking Ullswater and location of the stained glass window dedicated to HMS Glorious.

The service will be at 11.00 on the Sunday 20th June 2021 and I will be amending my FB page to show that if you would care to view it there my Facebook link is:

It was with great disappointment that all our 80th Anniversary events had to be cancelled, due to the pandemic.
We had events in Malta, Martindale (Lake District), National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas, Plymouth and the RBL Cenotaph parade in London.
GLARAC members from as far away as Australia had also planned to go to Harstad in Norway, where events had previously taken place to mark the 70th & 75th anniversaries.
Fortunately our friends in Harstad marked the event on our behalf. Great thanks go to Harald Isachsen, local historian and honourary member of our Association, who was instrumental in making sure this went ahead.
