The Fisgard Association
We are former Royal Navy artificer apprentices, most of whom served all or part of our training at the Royal Navy Artificer Training Establishment, HMS Fisgard or as part of the Fisgard Squadron in HMS Raleigh.
If you wish to join our Association, information on how to do so can be found here.

Message from the Chairman - Green & White 2020 Update
Good morning all, I hope that you are all keeping well after the last 3 months of lock-down and social restrictions. During this time, your Committee and I have been monitoring the situation to plan our way back to normality.
Unfortunately, as this return is much slower than initially expected, we have made the decision to move the 2020 Green and White Reunion Weekend to the 3rd - 6th September 2021. Same venue, same itinerary.
For all those that have booked, you do not need to do anything, I have negotiated the move with Isle of Wight Tours, who will transfer your deposit to next year and send you the ‘Information Pack. A small increase of £5.00 per night on the total cost has been agreed with them.
For those not booked but intending to go, please forward your deposits (£10.00 per head) to IoW Tours soonest to allow our planning to continue. More information on the weekend can be found here.
This also means that Series 55 Entry's 55th Anniversary Reunion will not be included but I will contact other classes to see if they have a lead who may wish to organise their class reunion in conjunction with our Fisgard G&W Reunion.
I am sorry we have had to do this, but our fellow Tiffs living in warmer climes and the other side of the world who were attending need to have time to change their travel arrangements. Additionally, here in Scotland, we are still in lock-down and cannot therefore travel – how long this will last, I do not know !
Best Regards all, stay safe and I look forward to seeing you at the AGM in November.
