INTRODUCTION, BY YOUR VIRTUAL CHAIRMAN
You all have been very patient but your patience has been rewarded, here it is, Bulletin 13. It was worthwhile waiting for it. This Bulletin has a lot of good news.
Just read it, and I am sure you agree.
We start with news about the cruisers. Very good news indeed. They are protected now under as well British and Dutch law.
After that a moment for my Treasure Chest: a very fine and interesting collection of Memorials, all over the UK.
Again we welcome new Members, this time just four, but they are very welcome. Their comrades are applauding them.
– Gunner Harry Mackey, HMS Hogue
– Frederick Lloyd, HMS Aboukir
– Henry McWhirter, HMS Aboukir
– Hugh D. Bennett, HMS Cressy
I conclude with this story: ‘A BEM, in the aftermath of the Centennial of 22 September 1914’.
My best wishes to you all. And: as always looking forward to your reactions.
The next Bulletin-14 is scheduled late summer, probably 22 September next. If before that date something urgent pops up, I will let you know.
