50th Commemorative Service on board HMAS Choules

The 10th February at HMAS Creswell and aboard HMAS Choules was a very successful and long day with many memories and closures for many. The Navy provided an event which will long be remembered by all. Many photos and videos by those present as well as professionals and the Navy. The day started by mustering at HMAS Creswell hall before being transported out ot HMAS Choules then voyaging out to see in the vicinity of the HMAS Voyager (II).  The on board service was well accepted and approximately 200 invited guests as well as Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, AO, CSC, RAN, Commanding Officer of HMAS Choules, Commanding Officer of HMAS Creswell and many other Navy personal without whom we would not have had an exceptional day.
Attention to our needs by Navy were first class and mixing with everyone chatting made for a most memorable occasion. The final event for the day was the afternoon tea followed by dinner then the Ceremonial Sunset and the ringing of the Ships' Bell once for each of the 82 names called aloud.  

Many photos are available on the following Navy website as well as a video.

Voyager Reunions and Services Feb 2014

Post I will be attempting to add information to this website covering all planned reunions and services for HMAS Voyager for the weekend covering the period 7th - 10th February 2014.

Services and Reunions are likely to be held at the following places and as further details come to hand I will be posting them on the Website and in this forum.

Huskisson (Jervis Bay) will be the main reunion run by the Survivors Association Committee.
Please view/download the pdf from the forum or FESR Website Forum as it contains the information and booking form for the Survivor's Reunion in Huskisson for 2014.
If you are unable to view/download the pdf from this Website forum (requirs you to be a registered user) then visit the FESR website forum "reunions" http://www.fesrnavy.asn.au
and download the pdf from there.

Huskisson has limited motel accommodation available in the immediate area so early bookings are advisable.
About 35K's away is Nowra and Bomaderry with a lot of accommodation and many of them reasonable in prices but you would need a Hire Vehicle to get around from there.

Perth will have a small reunion service gathering taking place at the Voyager seat in Kings Park on the 10th at this stage as many of the WA people will try to make it to the Huskisson reunion.

Brisbane will have a large service being held on the Sunday (9th February 2014) at the Navy Church, St Marys Anglican Church, Main St., Kangaroo Point, Brisbane.

I do expect to hear from the guys around Woy Woy area as I am sure they will plan something to be held in the Jonathan Rogers Voyager Memorial Park.

Sydney will very likely be holding a Memorial Service at the ANZAC Memorial but the date in Feb 2014 is to be arranged.

If anyone has details for services or reunions please add them to the forum if you are a registered user otherwise please send info to me and I will post it here on your behalf and also on the FESR Website forum.

That's it for now but rest assured I will be adding information and updating as soon as I receive it.
