Royal Naval Artificer Apprentices

Fisgard Association Xmas Greeting 2021

Message from the Chairman – Christmas 2021

Fellow Artificers,

As we once again approach Christmas in a restricted environment, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year. I hope that you are able to enjoy it with friends and family whilst remaining vigilant with regards to the ever changing threats from the virus.

2022 bodes much better than 2021 did last Christmas and I hope we can all get together for the upcoming events whether they are local ‘Pint & Pie’ meets or the formal ‘Green and White’ in September.

Next year is also the 40th Anniversary of the Falklands Campaign and we will be remembering our 14 fellow Apprentices who lost their lives during the conflict in services at the Falkland Island Memorial Chapel, Pangbourne College and the RNA Remembrance weekend in Portsmouth in June.

Until then, please take care and stay safe. If you are able, please keep in touch with your fellow Artificers whether by telephone, email or the website – the Royal Navy may have disbanded Artificers but it can never remove the ‘Esprit de Corps’ we built up over the century whilst we were part of it.

Yours Aye,
Bob
