“For the Seventy-Fifth Anniversary of that decisive battle, in a true spirit of reconciliation, those who had formerly been sworn enemies came together in friendly commemorations either side of the Channel, putting past differences behind them...” The Queen.

“By being willing to put past differences behind us and move forward together, we honour the freedom and democracy once won for us at so great a cost.”

Our #Reservists support the Royal Navy globally 🌍 all year around and across the Fleet.

An example of this was when one of our Chaplains, Chp Still, recalled a transit on board HMS Queen Elizabeth from 🇺🇸 to 🇬🇧 last November.

Speaking about the first of the Royal Navy's new Queen Elizabeth class carriers, he said "She is huge and momentous. It was gratifying to see the envy in the eyes of our US Navy visitors!"

When back in arriving in #Portsmouth, after crossing the Atlantic, he said "All the thousands of souls waiting to greet the 814 crew to take them home for Christmas was extraordinary".

General information

Bristol Division was one of the five divisions of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve formed in 1903. After World War I, the division was reformed and a new drill ship, a Fleet Sweeping Vessel (Sloop) - HMS Flying Fox - was berthed at Bristol in 1924. Renamed Severn Division after World War II, HMS Flying Fox moved ashore to its present HQ in 1972. The ship itself was towed down the Avon and across the Bristol Channel to a breaker's in Cardiff in 1973.

Thought I would share the following from my recent holiday which ended in Thailand with a visit to Kanchanaburi, the resting place of many of those who died as POW’s on the death railway. If you have an interest in WW2 military history I can highly recommend a visit to this area. I first visited the area 18 years ago and visited the Commonwealth War Grave to see the grave of a relative and a walk over the nearby River Kwai Bridge. However when doing a big of research recently I found the “The Thailand-Burma Railway Centre” (http://www.tbrconline.com/pilgrimage.htm) founded since my last visited and run about 2 couple of Australians. They put together a brilliant 2 day package which as well as a visit to the museum, I was able to visit the sites that my relative George Hayter would have been having been part of a movement of POW’s from the fall the Singapore. It was a very sad story but the 2 Aussies are doing a sterling job in keeping the memory of Far East Prisoners of War alive (now 75 years on). Over 25 years, time has been spent tracking the route of the railway and transcribing all the records available on the POW’s. If you find yourself in Thailand, especially around Bangkok, then a visit 3 hours east is worth a few days visit. The resort hotel I stayed in had sunset views of the River Kwai Bridge. The centre provided a personalised package, with options of hotel or airport pickup in Bangkok had a required it. If travelling with other family etc. there are a number of other unrelated activities in the area, elephant and monkey sanctuaries, resort hotels, treks and waterfalls.
