A few members of the Club were given a very well informed and comprehensive tour of the ship which lasted nearly 3 hours.

The Wardroom were very appreciative of the book ‘One Year of Life – The Story of H.M.S. Prince of Wales’ together with the framed obituary of Vice Admiral Dick Wildish which the Sea Urchins presented to them last year. Also very much appreciated was the piano Mike Tomkinson donated.

Photos are in the Events pages under HMS PRINCE OF WALES.

We submitted a bid for funds to the National Lottery Heritage Fund to help us celebrate our Centenary in 2021 and in particular to research and publish a book about the Club and our Past Presidents as well as engaging people in the maritime heritage of Liverpool and Naval cultural traditions.

I am very pleased to announce that we have just heard from the NLHF that our submission was successful and we can now proceed with the project. We are most grateful to them and to the people and organisations that supported the submission.

Now the hard work starts!
