This year we are supporting the  Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity
RN&RM C


"With 14 Type 42's Commissioned in the RN. Most 42’s have separate reunions every year. Just thought it would be a good idea to amalgamate everyone in to one T42 Association, for one big reunion every couple of years"
(Bob Mullen )
(Chairman).

"The Type 42s and more importantly, the many members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, who have played their part in a most memorable part of our Navy’s history. Each and every destroyer has its own distinctive history yet the force as a whole has formed the backbone of our nation’s maritime history over the past 40 years. They and their people have fought with honour and distinction in all our major conflicts, and contributed to the success of most of the minor operations since the first Type 42 became operational in the 1970`s. Those who have served in these 14 destroyers have been a true band of brothers."
(Rear Admiral Philip Lawrence Wilcocks CB, DSC)
(Honorary President of the Association).
