2018 Reunion Report

Harrogate was a little low on numbers but was made up with loads of Fun and Frolics.

The PPC Brigade (2L PO’S Mess) arrived a day earlier on the Thursday and tested the water (beer) before the rest arrived on the Friday. The Boss and Lady Jane arrived with the new Admirals Barge (looks like a motorised scooter) and proceeded to demolish half of the furniture in the Hotel, Ged Smith did try some simple manoeuvers in the Bar area but only achieved straight line speed of 1mph. More members turned up during the day with The Bell Pub and Wetherspoons providing most of the cheap ale and food. (Phots. coming soon).

Saturday morning we had our AGM followed by exciting pub and bus trips (!!!!!!!)

Saturday evening started with TOT TIME followed by the local Sea Cadet Corps. of Drums and Bugle giving us an excellent display of their musical talents. Well done to all concerned, the CO and XO then joined us for the Gala Dinner. A great Dinner with all the usual speeches and toasts and a successful Raffle, the Association donated £100 to the Cadets in appreciation of all their efforts on the night.

Letters of appreciation were sent to both the Crown Hotel and to the Sea Cadets and replies received.

Looking forward to the 2019 Anniversary Reunion in Lichfield and the NMA weekend October 11-13.


Plenty of rooms available until 27th August then the Hotel will release them to the general public, so get organised and book this weekend. The local Sea Cadets will be attending and be hoping to provide us with either a corps of drums or fan fare display. 

Anyone wishing to join us at the AGM on Saturday morning and would like to help out with the Committee and any Members wishing to add an item to the Agenda please let me know by October 7th.

Reunion 2017 in Worcester

Another successful AGM and Reunion completed, the venue was excellent and we were well looked after by Mohammed and his Team in the Fownes Hotel. We had our own 'JUPITER LOUNGE' for the Friday night Buffet, for the AGM on the Saturday morning and the Dinner on Saturday night. The Pub Crawl was close at hand in the Town, whilst some of the guys went to see the local Rugby match, others hit the Shops or other attractions.

The local Sea Cadets attended on Saturday Night with their Standard and used their Bosun's Calls to announce UP SPIRITS and Hands to Dinner, many thanks to their CO CPO Rob McCarthy and 1st Lt. CPO Martin Griffiths for turning out an exemplary team. The Association made a contribution from the proceeds of the Raffle to the Sea Cadet Unit as a thanks for all their efforts.

Our President presented a Jupiter Plaque to CPO McCarthy to commemorate the occasion and Jackie Blain presented Lady Jane with a bouquet of flowers.

The AGM was completed in record time chaired by Jan Blain, the Committee remained the same, the finances were proved sound, Membership was steady but needed to be increased to make occasions more fresh and new ideas etc. 

It was proposed that Whitby would be scouted to see if we could have the next Reunion & AGM in the area, Ged Smith and Jock O'Neil were asked to investigate. It was also agreed to have the 2019 Reunion at the NMA/Lichfield to commemorate the Anniversaries of 80th Anniversary of F85 being Commissioned, 50th Anniversary of F60 being Commissioned and the 15th Anniversary of the Jupiter Association, the Secretary to organise.
