INTRODUCTION, BY YOUR VIRTUAL CHAIRMAN
This Bulletin-19 is dated 22nd September 2022, the 108th anniversary of the disaster just off my Dutch coast. And already 8 years ago a lot of our Members, about 1,000, gathered in Chatham, at the Dockyard for the Centennial, the one and till now the only Remembrance Ceremony to honour these men.
In two years’ time it will be 10 years ago. Time to celebrate again? In Chatham, at the Dockyard? What do you think? Any ideas? Please let me know! I’ll be most happy to be (again) the initiator.
I have the story of a life for you, of William Ernest Fester, but no photo of him. Who can help me out? My best wishes for you all.
Henk H.M. van der Linden
