Secretary’s Report:  

Nothing apart from AGM which will be covered shortly

Social Secretary’s Report:

Ladies night, we have had 3 people involved in the Ladies night which is 2 people to many in my opinion. The running of the Ladies night has been handed over to the V P.  Numbers for the ball stand at 73 and it is intended to get through the meal quickly so the ladies can have a boogie.

Vice President:

I am looking at trying to get a day out preferably a Saturday, to do something as an association, at the football, rugby, golf, horses, anything as a group. Also possibly holding a meeting on board a warship.

Presidents Report: 

A landmark meeting being our 300. The August meeting sometimes we skip it, a show of hands to have an August meeting, looks like it could be on. A sincere but belated congratulations to our latest member on the POs signal Nobby Hall, so well done. (Nobby Clarke, not Nobby Hall) A bottle of port from the Prez.

Dear Ty I got the e-mail reference Alex Pugh funeral From Mike Smith. Sadly was arraigning to come down for the funeral but my car is still in the garage being repaired and will not be available until next week. Alex was my FCPOGI at Dartmouth when I was CTO, in the early 70’s we were a great team and became good friends. Over the years I lost contact as one does. So could you convey on my behalf to the family my deepest sympathy at his passing, always remembered as a good friend and a great G I. I will have a qiet moment with him on Friday.

Lieutenant Commander Brian Witts MBE Rtd
