As John Kempton reported a few days back MQPS was represented at the commissioning ceremony of HMS Medway. A couple of photos have been sent in showing their acknowledgement of Medway Queen's links to HMS Medway, a River Class patrol vessel.
John reported on the 19th: "very pleasant weather today here at Gillingham, good job to, as just back from commissioning ceremony for the new HMS Medway. Much gathering of the great and the good, including our patron Lord West, what a great ship and ship's company. The ceremony was great with the marine band. I presented to the executive officer a copy of a painting we have of the ship outside Chatham dockyard pre-war, with an old naval ship in the back ground.We are affiliated with the new ship, and I am sure you join me in wishing her and the company all the best."
