Wardroom HMS President London Division RNR

Guest of Honour

 Commanding Officer Cdr. Clare Hughes 3rd from Right.


The highlight of our 2004 UK visit was the Summer Lunch, it has been nine years since I have been able to attend one.

This was Sharon's first Summer Lunch and by the smile on her face, I know she enjoyed it as much as I did.
