RR member receives accolade from Princess Royal

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by Naval_Gazer, Nov 15, 2012.

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. Many of the news articles featured on this website were written by Richard Hargreaves while he was Defence Correspondent of the Portsmouth News and, more recently, the wide-roaming News Editor of Navy News. Lately, he has also become involved in producing the RN website's News section.

    Throughout his journalistic career, Richard has been a staunch proponent of the Royal Navy. It is therefore entirely fitting that he was presented with the Desmond Wettern Maritime Media Award by HRH the Princess Royal at the Annual Maritime Media Awards Dinner at the Institute of Directors on Wednesday night and I am delighted for him. The dinner was also attended by the First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope GCB OBE, and last year’s winner, BBC defence correspondent Caroline Wyatt.

    I hope all members of RR will join me in offering Richard our warm congratulations. More about the awards on the Royal Navy's Facebook Group page here: HRH The Princess Royal at this year’s Maritime Media Awards

    I think a certain branch of the RN caught something that plopped out of her mummies shithouse on the Royal Yatch and had it varnished and mounted....... The swarve fellows. :)

  13. I remember it well. The chippy had her bodyguard standing over him with a loaded ratchet, just in case he tried to spirit the regal jobby down below for a coat of gold paint and blessed immortality in a case behind the chief's bar!

    Nah. Wrong dit, feller.

    Suffice to say, this regal motion was 'substantial', and disposed of with respect.

  15. I've got a signed photo of her dhoby bucket.
