A Reunion weekend is usually held annually at the end of October at venues chosen by the membership. Friday nights take the form of an informal get together and Saturday is a free-to-roam day. The A.G.M. is held on Friday or Saturday evening followed by a brief muster in the bar prior to dinner, however these have recently been held over Zoom. On completion of the dinner on the Saturday, the raffle is held, proceeds of which go to a local charity, before retiring to the bar to finish with a social evening. On Sunday morning a service is held, which in the past has been conducted by the Association Padre.  Sadly we do not have a Padre at present.


               Due to the disruption caused by the pandemic, our last full reunion was held in 2019, although a small number of members did take the opportunity to hold a social weekend at the intended venue in Coventry in 2021 as the full reunion had yet again been cancelled.


There have been occasions, on some weekends, when other activities have been organised for those interested, for example:

  • In Liverpool, a visit was arranged to the Western Approaches Museum;
  • In Chatham, a visit to the Historic Naval Dockyard;
  • In Taunton, a visit to the Hydrographic Department on Friday afternoon was enjoyed by many as was a skittles match and buffet on Sunday afternoon.

 Other visits have included the Tank Museum at Bovington, The National Memorial Arboretum at Burton on Trent, SS Great Britain at Bristol and, Salford Quays Greater Manchester.
