Royal Yacht Britannia

On the 30th August 2016, Club 21 were represented at the event hosted by the Russian Federation on the Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh, Scotland. The photo above includes Anna C McKessock (Chair) with Veteran Ron Gabriel Mackie and his son Ronnie. Ron had a fantastic time as did all the Veterans.

We also had the Grandson of a Veteran (Anna’s nephew, who is a Royal Marine Bugler) who attended events in Russia.

In August 2016 there will be events in the UK & Russia to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the very first convoy to Russia.

Operation “Dervish” left Liverpool, England on the 12th August 1941, gathered ships at Scapa Flow, Scotland and safely arrived in Russia on the 31st August.

We are very happy & proud to announce that some of our members will be attending events in the UK & Russia and Thank the Russian Federation for their on-going support for our Veterans & war heroes.
