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 together with application forms for the events. Details will also be posted on the Euryalus website

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 -
