Letter: New website for Navy
MAY I draw to the attention of those readers who have served in the Royal Navy, that the system for them to find their old shipmates, “RN Shipmates”, now has a website www.rnshipmates.co.uk
This not only lists HM Ships’ Associations, but has a list of Ships’ Reunions, with dates and locations. Scribbled notes from those with more specific requests and searches are also displayed. I feel sure that any person who has served in the Royal Navy will find something of interest.
Many Associations are listed, but a new one for 12 ships of the HMS Blackwood Class Antisubmarine Frigates, is up and running thanks to the publicity given in the recent past by local newspapers across the country printing my letters.
