Hi, I have applied to join the Association for 2 reasons, my late father was a sub-lieutenant gunner on the Monte Bello-Suez trip and I wish to see the ship and her history live on in public awareness through my voluntary work at Devonport Naval Base Heritage Centre where I am currently putting together a small display on HMS Royal Oak as the Centenary of her launch is coming up this year as well as the 79th anniversary of her sinking at Scapa Flow'
I am 65, retired, married with a son and daughter. I am a naval history enthusiast and avid reader of the same. My working career spanned 47 years, 13 years in Devonport Dockyard, 14 years in the Merchant Navy and 20 years on the railway.Now happily living in Plymouth.
