HMS Turbulent launch

Discussion in 'Submariners' started by spearfish, Jan 21, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Were any of you present in Barrow at the launch of HMS Turbulent and who were the VIPs that were invited?Were any members of the wartime Turbulent's company invited?
     
  2. Spearfish

    She was launched in 1982 by Lady Deborah Cassidi, the wife of Admiral Sir Desmond Cassidi, former Second Sea Lord.
     
  3. Was there, the film crew was Geeing the crowd up before the launch and filming them. At the launch when she went down the slipway every one was watching in open mouthed awe and silence. On the evening news it was edited so it looked like we were cheering as she went into the water.
     
  4. I know there was a chap called Sid Kay there from the wartime Turbulent,were there any others, and does anybody have any pictures from the day?
     
  5. Hi Spearfish,

    Try contacting Barrie Downer, the Sec. of the B-in-F Submariners Association:

    Its a great site and I'm sure he or one of his group will be able to help.
