All aboard for Royal Naval reunion
8:00am Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
EIGHT members of the Chard branch of the Royal Naval Association met up with their old shipmates and pals at a reunion in north Devon.
The group attended the RNA Area 4’s 38th ann-ual reunion at the Durrant House Hotel in Bide-ford, where they enjoyed a packed weekend of reminiscing with Royal Navy veterans across the region.
The Chard group’s Dick Moon said: “The hotel was fully booked, and we enjoyed a packed weekend with excellant food, ample entertainment and superb company.”
During the weekend the guests were able to put on a concert of entertainment, and the Chard branch’s very own life member and standard bearer, Malcolm Day, was awarded the Yeovil Rosebowl award – first given to the RNA in 1995 – for the third time for best individual act.
He performed excellent renditions of songs by artists such as Tom Jones, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.
