HMS Illustrious Comms Reunion 2015

Reunion 2015

The stage for our 2015 reunion was set, an 80's Weekend at Butlin's - Skegness.

Our theme for the weekend was Hi Di Hi. It promised to be a great weekend...

...but to say that the weekend got off to a bad start is an understatement.

A bunch of silly old matelots turning up at Skegness only to be told that we were booked into Bognor Regis wasn't the best way to kick it all off.

A furore ensued when they asked us for more money per night which led to one member departing and the now famous quote from Timmy Froggatt of "I don't do poverty!"

Jim Prince took one hell of a beating, Bomber ceased speaking to him until he realised that he wouldn't get any gizzits in Pass-the-Parcel and it took about 5 pints for the atmosphere to finally drop.

But for all of the messing about it turned out to be one of our most successful reunions to date. We took over the bar and one has to say that our choice of attire for the Saturday evening was one of the best.
