HMS PEMBROKE MEMORIAL PARADE

On the 3rd Sept 1917 the Drill Hall RN Baracks Chatham was bombed with the loss of 135 lives. The barracks were handed over to Greenwich University in 1984 and the memorial plaque was lost. The Drill Hall has been refurbished as the new library for Universities of Kent and Greenwich and a new memorial will be unveiled during a parade on 10th Sept 06.

The parade will be led by the Band of HM Royal Marines (Plymouth) and the Guard of HMS PRESIDENT.

Any ex or serving matelots are welcome to attend i will be happy to provide a detailed brief and pass on contact details of the organisers. The parade will be on the Old HMS PEMBROKE parade ground, which should evoke many memories.

Nice to know that Pembroke will still have some connection to the RN. I pass there regularly on my way from/to London to see my old dad ( a former Pembroke based Crusher on many occasions), and remember the place well from my three drafts.
Regrettably I won't be there because of work requirements.
I trust that the local rag will be in attendance to record the dedication?

My typing skills are the result of course at Pembroke. Apart from the typing, my lasting memory of the establishment was the similarity between the Pembroke, Drake and Nelson Wardroom buildings.

Well I have to say another storming performance from the Guard of Honour.

Despite the heat (and hang over), we managed to pull it off. No idea what it looked like from the audience point of view, but from centre rank it felt good.

Who took the salute?
MasterCheif will kill me for this but the Mayoress of Medway and an Admiral (or rear/vice derivative).

He did give his name but I was having an alcoholically induced brain haemorrage at the time so wasn't taking much attention.
 
Beer Bosun you scrote

It was:--
Rear Admiral P L Wilcocks DSC
Philip Wilcocks became Flag Officer Scotland, Northern England and Northern Ireland (FOSNNI) and Flag Officer Reserves (FORes) on 25 April 2006. His office is headquartered in the Clyde Naval Base, Faslane.

Still what can i expect from a Southern Magpie
