Hants TCA Christmas Dinner 2018

Was held on Tuesday 11th December 2018 at the Maritime Club, Portsmouth.

The new TCA Chairman Peter HarrisonĀ  attended our dinner this year.

The lunch was expertly organised by our Stores Officer Laurie Johnson. Twelve members attended which was a bit of a disappointment. However Laurie & I have agreed that we should increase the advertising for the 2019 get together.

After introductions in the bar we moved to the restaurant where all enjoyed an excellent meal. Attendees (Starboard side far end) Peter Harrison, Derek Newman, Mary Newman,Sue Johnson, Laurie Johnson (Port side far end) Rob Hoole, Alan Mold, Bob Lusty & Dee Dean.

Hants TCA Christmas Dinner 2015

19 members and Wives/Partners attended the dinner and I am pleased to report that all went well and everyone enjoyed their meal.
We had one or two who were first timers including Colin (TCA Padre) & Irene Noyce having just joined the TCA.
Old hands did ask if one will be held next year (2016). We will be giving this serious consideration. Would local, and not so local, members be interested in another dinner/meeting during the year. If so contact the area rep by clicking here.

It is with sorrow that I have to tell you that Hampshire TCA Member Ron Walsh has Crossed the Bar. Ron, who was 95, joined the RN in 1936 and was discharged ‘Time Served‘ on the 28th April 1969. He wrote a book about his life called ‘In The Company Of Heroes‘ a signed copy of which I am the proud owner. Ron’s funeral took place at 1500 hrs onĀ  Monday 9th November at Portchester Crematorium, Fareham, Hants.

TCA Members Bill Pollington, Rob Hoole & Bob Dean with wife Dee Dean attended.
