Polaris boats Reunion anyone ?

Looking through a few of these threads and I have been to a SOCA reunion at Dolphin a few years ago it strikes me that there is no Reunion for us old Bomber Queens.

So if anyone fancies a get together sometime to swap dits about our long and happy patrol times put your name to this thread and we can see how many we can muster and take it from there.

Thanks for your time in reading this thread.

I was on Bombers . Last reunion I was at half the attendees were bomber crew members at one time --till they could get off to better boats LOL

Mind you the sea shore ratio with the two crews was a bonus and I did enjoy my time on them .[71-82 ]

I know that the Repulse has a Reunion Association and their web-site can be found here - I don't know whether they'd be able to put you in touch with a general Polaris boats group.

So is it possible to get a look round one of the old boats still?

OK, I'm still listening. Bomber Queen, go on.

One other thing. If the Yanks invented the nuclear sub and call the Polaris/Tridents things 'Boomers', then why do our blokes call them 'Bombers'? Did we fcuk up or something? :?

I remember when an AVRO Vulvan was the epitome of what was considered to be a bomber. :?

Maybe it was like the difference between "Bomber Command" and "Fighter Command" in the RAF - both on the same side, but doing different roles. The Elmers could never get their heads around that one.

I would love to see some form of reunion. I was Reso Port 82-87, Reso Stbd 90 to Gold crew then took her into Rosyth to payoff. Lots of drunken happy memories.
