Cheltenham goes to Portsmouth

On 5th July 2016 fourteen Members gathered for what is becoming our annual trip to Portsmouth to coincide with the Communicators Lunch.  Driven in a minibus by former M/T Driver Chris Walker, who had a gap in her Standard-bearing duties, we set off for the Royal Maritime Club. On the way we visited the fascinating Hillier Gardens near Romsey. The following day we enjoyed a visit to the Submarine Museum at Gosport, spent time by the sea at Lee on Solent then either visited one of the many attractions in the Dockyard (all included in our £10 ticket), HMS Warrior, old haunts in Southsea or met with friends in the area. On the last day three members attended the Comms Lunch while the remainder explored the Quays before returning to Cheltenham exhausted after a very happy trip.
