Visiting the U.K

The United Kingdom Local Chapter

Postby Pat Drake » Mon Jul 19, 2004 2:16 am

I am planning a trip to u.K from 28 / 8/04 to 2/10/04 . Is there any sub activity on at this time? A second choice would be a boating regatta. Pat Drake, Queesland, Australia.

Ha!

You'll be just in time for the Norwich Boat Club Submarine day on 29/08/04.

It's the second year it's run, and although I couldn't make it last time, it was very well attended by all accounts.

Pat,

My latest AMS "In Depth" also recommends the Barley Lands show in Essex 11 & 12th Sept.

Email me separately if you want further details.

Don't forget the RN submarine museum at Gosport with a lot of new exhibits including the Holland in its new building.

I trust all is well with your Pinger - it has now saved its second submarine over here!

It is not a UK visit but a good article also in the latest AMS "In Depth" describes a day visit from Portsmouth to Cherbourg.

"Le Redoubtable" is a French "boomer" which has been cut open for visitors at the "Cite de la Mer" (also sounds worth a visit).

I haven't been yet but French undersea exhibits are usually of a very high standard and I don't know where else in the world you can visiit a nuclear powered missile submarine.

Have fun!
