2017 AGM and Reunion


Last year’s AGM and Reunion was, as expected, well attended with approximately 50 members plus partners and wives in attendance. This was the penultimate AGM and Reunion and the last to be held at Chatham. Many members arrived on the Friday night and ate together informally in the restaurant at the King Charles Hotel. Many also took full advantage of reduced entrance to the Historic Dockyard, Chatham to spend the Saturday viewing the exhibits. In the afternoon we had a reception on board HMS Gannet. A photograph of those in attendance can be seen below (click for enlarged version).













2018 - The Final AGM and Reunion


The last Mercury Reunion will take place at the Royal Beach Hotel, Southsea over the weekend of the 21-23 September 2018. Provision has been made for members and guests to arrive on the Friday night. On Saturday morning coaches will run from Southsea to Hamble where we will march from the centre of the village to the church. After the service there will be a buffet lunch and a visit to ‘The Creek’ and the memorial. Coaches will then head back to Southsea for the AGM and Reunion in the evening.
