The Reunion will be held at the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA), which is situated at Alrewas, Staffordshire, between Birmingham and Burton upon Trent. For more information on the venue, please visit

The NMA is the site of the only physical memorial dedicated to HMS Dunedin, our commemorative plinth. 

We will hold a ceremony in the late morning (probably around 11.30 a.m. but we will confirm this later) by the HMS Dunedin plinth. After members have had a chance to view the grounds and have lunch (restaurant and coffee shop on site, or your own picnic), we then have a room booked from 1 p.m. where documentation and memorabilia of the ship can be viewed. We will also provide further information on the ship and our society, chat to members new and old, and have a discussion session.

More information will follow at a later stage. However, at this stage we would be grateful if members who are interested in attending could confirm this intention (including an estimate of how many would be in your party) as soon as possible by emailing us here. This commits you to nothing, but it would help us hugely in our planning of the day.  An indication of whether you will attend the indoor session from 1 p.m. would also help us understand the likely numbers.

Visits to the NMA require advance booking at a cost per car of £4. There are no other entry costs.  Visitors who arrive unannounced will not be admitted to the grounds.  Booking is open now and can be done on the NMA website here.

We look forward to hearing from those of you who would like to join us for this event at the NMA.  Do let us know if you are unsure if you can make it but would like to be kept in the loop in case it becomes possible.
