Last weekend in July in Pompey (26-27). It may run into the Monday as well (28). It's now known as "Meet the Navy". I don't know much about it yet (but there's a chance I will be writing the guidebook in due course...) but there will be "a carrier" there (no, not Vince). As Ocean's in refit, I guess that means Ark or Lusty. There's also going to be a smattering of foreign warships as well.

The Gambian navy is still undecided if it should send 4 destroyers. Chile will send 6 submarines and Poland and Serbo Croat 3 frigates each. Fiji is hoping to send its aircraft carrier and Gibraltar its Flotilla.
1SL is talking to 2SL and CinC Fleet to see if the Royal Marine Band (Fleet) could be made available . They are further discussing who should take the salute should it be so available. A further meeting is to be held to iron this wrinkle out. This has now been fixed for the week-end April 1 2008 until April 3 2008 at the Grosvenor House Hotel Park Lane . Wives and partners of 1SL 2SL CinC Fleet their advisors and ADC's expenses will be met from the public purse. Additional Drinks and Canapes will be charged individually.
This plenary session will proceed to determine whether 1SL 2SL or CinC Fleet will take the salute. A further session is /or/maybe/appropriate should indecision prevail. However please note -wives ,partners and friends will not be able to claim hotel and ancilliary expenses for the second tranche

It was Traf 200 and IFOS in 2005 because it was a massive week of Naval-ness. Utterly wonderful week that was.
