BA Annual Dinner

On Friday 28th June 135 BA members and their guests gathered on board the ss Great Britain in Bristol for our annual dinner.

The evening began with an up-date on todays Royal Navy worldwide operations from Lieutenant Nicola Stephens of the Royal Navy Presentation Team.

We then moved on board Brunel's steam powered passenger ship ss Great Britain, looking most splendid in her dry dock setting where the drinks reception was enjoyed on both the promenade and weather decks. This was brought to an impressive close by the Corps of Drums from the Volunteer Band of HMS Drake who performed a Mess Beating for us.

We then moved down to the spectacular first class saloon for a delicious three course meal when both the wine and conversation flowed freely.

Captain Graham Robinson, Vice Chair of our Board of Trustees, presided at the dinner and introduced our guest speaker Captain Jerry Jyd, Captain BRNC.
