HMS Dunedin Reunion and Memorial Service 2018
This yearâ€™s Reunion and Memorial Service will take place on Saturday 24th November at the Royal Naval Memorial, Southsea Common, and simultaneously at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
Royal Naval Memorial
Members of the Dunedin Society will gather at the Royal Naval Memorial on Southsea Common at 1300 for a Service of Remembrance and wreath-laying, once more conducted by the Rev. Colin Noyce R.N.
As usual, members will gather at the Royal Maritime Club after the service, but please feel free to meet us there for morning coffee beforehand if you have time. You can either order your lunch then from the Compass CafÃ© or in advance by telephoning the Club on 023 9282 4231 or emailing on email@example.com. You can find all the details of the Club, including menus, by clicking here.
In the afternoon we will have the opportunity to meet and chat, to reminisce and to share memorabilia and photos – we do hope you will bring some. With this yearâ€™s event being on a Saturday, we are expecting more members to be free to attend, especially as this will likely be the last opportunity for such an organised event for the foreseeable future.
Should you wish to stay on for dinner, the membersâ€™ price for three courses and coffee is Â£16.25 and can be booked on the day with the Club.
For anyone wishing to stay the night, accommodation is very limited this year so please book ASAP and by the latest 10th November with the Club on 02392 824231 choosing the â€˜Accommodationâ€™ option. Be sure to mention your HMS Dunedin membership. The prices are:
Dinner B&B double or twin room: Â£123.00 Dinner B&B single room: Â£65.00
Please respond by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you will be attending. We need an idea of numbers for the memorial service, lunch and dinner.
Multy-story car parking is available opposite the Club at Admiralty Tower where tickets can be 50% discounted by the Clubâ€™s Reception. Parking in the side street is free for the first hour, then by permit, also from Reception. The parking metres in Queen Street are now rather expensive. Alternatively the Harbour multi-story car park is in nearby Havant street.
