NEWS ITEMS

URGENT INFORMATION REQUIRED DOES ANYONE KNOW THE FOLLOWING IF SO

CONTACT MICK INSHAW

good morning to you , thankyou for replying.I was hoping that someone may have known my father, or even heard of him . have been trying to find anything out about him.As have lost contact with him, since the seventies, my parents divorced by then. To put your mind at ease, no fault of  my father,
my mother died last year, so i feel that  looking for imformation would not cause concern for others. the last address we lived at was Hilsea naval housing. Will understand if you think you no longer want to be in contact with me  assure you no bad feelings with my father on both sides.       therefore would you be able to ask  anyone at your ass meetings? sending you  the name and service number again.       John black Mackenzie.

Repulse first commission

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This Web Site was designed for people who served on H.M. Submarine Repulse. We have a lot of archive pictures and facts about the submarine and those whom served on her. We would also like to hear from those who served on or helped build her but are not members of the association, please state which commision and which crew. If you had a friend who served upon Repulse and have lost contact and we might be able to help you re-establish contact with them.If you have any interesting facts, figures or pictures of Repulse we would love to hear about them. We can scan and return your photo's.


An End of Polaris ceremony was held in Faslane Naval Base on the 28 August 1996 with the then Prime Minister, John Major giving the final decommissioning speech to close the Polaris programme. During the ceremony a commemorative plaque was unveiled at the entrance to the Trident base.

After the ceremony a small buffet lunch was held in the "Ship Lift" and a group of "Repulsives" met together for the first time for many years. The lunch progressed to a dinner in the Ardencaple Hotel that evening and it was decided that having had such a good time, they ought to do it again in the future. So is it and the above Association was born:

ChairmanFrank Scutt CMEA (P) retired (frank.scutt@gmail.com)
Secretary

Mick Inshaw

POOEL (P) retired (m.inshaw@lineone.net)
TreasurerGeorge ElwardCMech (P) retired

The association first met on the 25th September 1997 at the Imperial Hotel, Barrow in Furness (The birthplace of Repulse).

The association at that time had 73 people who declared in interest in joining. We now have around 125 members and still looking for more to join.

The association has it own newsletter, an AGM and we have a reunion about every two years. Our membership fee is very small and only used for administration costs.
