Today I visited the HQS "Wellington" with my grandson, Robert Hodkinson, to belatedly celebrate his twenty sixth birthday. We had excellent weather which made it a pleasure to enjoy pre lunch drinks and meet new friends on the quarterdeck prior to descending to the Court Room for the main event. We enjoyed an excellent meal which was followed by a witty and informative tour of the ship conducted by the Clerk to the Company, Commodore Angus Menzies RN. The Senior Warden, Captain Flavian D’Souza, accompanied us also. The company on the ship was most enjoyable and , all in all, it was very pleasant occasion.

Pictures of the event can be seen at You can view the pictures individually or click on the "View as a slideshow" link on the left hand side of the screen and have a slide show. Once in slide show mode you can click on a picture and your images will be shown full screen, ie. with no borders. I hope you like them.
