Hamble Village Magazine

To tie in with the events in Hamble during the weekend of our final reunion in September 2018, Hamble Village ran a series of articles about TS Mercury in their monthly magazine. These were written by Snowy White, our magazine editor and historian. You can find these listed here. The first article was in the May edition.  







Some years ago John Dawkins, an artist, painted a picture of HMS Gannet in RN service. To see a thumbnail please click here. Several members of the association have already purchased prints. Although various sizes are available, for an A3 print the price is £55-00 plus P&P. If you are interested please contact John direct on or at ‘Greenways’, Chediston Green, Halesworth, Suffolk IP19 0BB. He also has a website,, where you can see other examples of his work (the Gannet picture does not feature).
