Special day today. Barrie Jones and Stephen Sedgwick from the South Atlantic Medal (82) Association dropped in to present F8 with two commemorative flags, very generously paid for by James Alcock of Tuff Guy, Canada. Both will be flown with pride on suitable occasions. Thank you very much to all concerned.

F8 is having a well-earned break for a few days. Check the dates to avoid disappointment.

So this deceptive spread hides 1,064 de-classified pages of material, solely about the amphibious phase of the Falklands campaign, including, but not limited to; COs war diaries, HMS FEARLESS Ship’s logs, BATCO grids (??????), MISREPS, post action reports, and inquest proceedings. Please do not disturb until at least 2024 whilst I try to absorb all of this.
Also pictured is the Cabinet Table, with you know who occupying the “Prime”central position. Other spaces have been filled with the place cards, bios and the “props” of other PMs.

Whoops!!!!!

Never a dull day with Foxtrot 8. Today we “mowed the lawn” and practised the emergency ramp recovery method. 🤪

LCVP F8 and her stable mate HSL102 made the short journey across Portsmouth harbour’s main channel to Haslar Marina. The pair were invited to take part in the Gosport Maritime Festival. Waiting for them was another historic ship, the WW2 DDay veteran HMS MEDUSA.
F8 was able to run harbour tours for the visitors, now taking her total this year to over 800!
