Letter for Publication in the Navy News:

Below is a copy of a letter recently submitted by John Lean (Euryalus 1964 – 66) for publication in the Navy News regarding the Gallipoli Centenary - April 2015.

Calling all EURYALUS shipmates

All who have served on board either the Dido class cruiser or the Leander class frigate will remember the lively association there has been with XX The Lancashire Fusiliers, all as a result of Gallipoli in April 1915 when the Fusiliers were landed ashore in the cruiser Euryalus’s boats. The landing met with fierce opposition and the Fusiliers suffered hugely. Their distinction was to win “6 VCs before breakfast”. The Euryalus boats’ crews in the charge of midshipmen were also very much in the fray and their gallantry was recognised by a number of awards. In Bury, Lancashire, the centenary of the landing is being commemorated from 24 to 26 April 2015, and all who have been associated with the WW2 cruiser or frigate are warmly welcomed.

Some of the events in the programme are:

Friday 24 April Black tie dinner plus (for those who do not wish to attend this dinner) an informal gathering for the renewal of friendships made many years ago.

Saturday 25 April Royal Marines Band concert and an “all ranks” gathering.

Sunday 26 April A parade, Church Service and march past followed by a lunch.

Fuller details which will be updated periodically can be found on http://www.lancs-fusiliers.co.uk/news/newsevents.htm together with application forms for the events. Details will also be posted on the Euryalus website http://www.euryalus.org.uk/
home.htm

There is much chatter about the centenary on the Facebook page “HMS Euryalus F15 - Old Oppos”, and we would ask that any shipmate intending to attend not only contacts The Lancashire Fusiliers as above but also adds a ditty on this Facebook page. The more who are seen to be attending the more that others will be attracted.

Rear Admiral John Trewby (a midshipman in F15 1964/5) has kindly agreed to head the Euryalus delegation. So far one former Commanding Officer, Commander Martin Rhodes, has agreed to attend. We would like more. Can anyone provide contact details for any other COs?

The focus of those who have been discussing the centenary has been on the march past on the Sunday. Even if you have always had a hatred for marching we ask you to join in on this. Marchers are guaranteed warm applause from Bury bystanders. We would like the Euryalus participation to stand out.

Please refer any queries either to me (email address below) or to Florrie Ford who spent 7 years in the frigate - charlesford1@blueyonder.co.uk.

About the hotel:
The Rutland Square Hotel is ideally placed near the centre of the city. The railway station is approx a 10 minute walk, but taxi only costs about £4. There is also a bus station close by, and the hotel does have a car park, charges for which apply. For long distance travellers, the airport is East Midlands, and I am assured there is a good bus service into the city.

The hotel is very friendly and comfortable. The shops are about a 5 - 10 minute walk (depending on how young your legs are!!), Also close by are the Castle and the oldest pub in England ‘The Trip to Jerusalem', well worth a visit!!

Have some lunch, explore the Dockyard or retail therapy in Gunwharf Quays (ex HMS Vernon) or just relax in the club, maybe a swim or a bit of  'swinging the lamp'! and a few pints!
18.30 for 19.00 Annual Re-Union Dinner in the Nelson Lounge
 
Costs:
Friday 19th Bed and breakfast 
Dinner in Horatio's Restaurant, bed and breakfast
£40.00 per person
£55.00 per person
Saturday 20th 3 course re-union dinner, bed and breakfast 
3 course dinner only
£68.50 per person
£28.50 per person

Anyone wishing to stay a further night/s the cost for bed and breakfast would be £40 per person. These rates are the special member rates. 

All bookings and payments are to be made direct with The Royal Maritime Club, just state that you are attending the HMS Euryalus Weekend, this will guarantee you the favoured rate.

At the moment there are just over 30 rooms (twins and doubles) available for the weekend, but I would urge you to make your decision and book as soon as possible to secure your room. 

Note: There is unfortunately a £15 pppn single supplement on double/twin rooms let for single occupancy and unfortunately too I believe that all single rooms have now gone! I hope you will not be too disappointed or put off but sadly, its the way of the world these days, charging the supplement.

There is also a situated just inside Gunwharf Quays if you are unable to book at the Royal Maritime Club (I still want to call it the 'Home Club' - old habits die hard!!!), but it would be much nicer to have as many as possible 'under the same roof' so to speak!! 

We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible, and if you're in contact with old shipmates, either members of the association or not (and why not!) get them to come as well, the more that attend, the better the input into the Association.
