The Royal Navy Type 21 Association is open to all that served on, or were closely associated with Type 21 Frigates.
 
Royal Navy Type 21 Frigates were sleek fast ships which served with distinction and were very popular with the crew. Many sailors served on more than one of the class and were referred to as the 21 CLUB. Type 21 Frigates were the work horse of the RN during the 1980s and were involved in the entire range of activities.
 
The RN Type 21 Association formed two years ago and are now building both the association and their membership. In addition, they have formed a close link with the RBL Crownhill Branch in Plymouth who have provided them with valuable support and in return Type 21 have held functions in the Club and raised funds for the Poppy Appeal.
 
The third annual reunion of the Type 21 Club will be held in Plymouth on 5-7 October 2012. It is open to all who served in any of the Type 21 (AMAZON Class) Ships or anyone who had a close connection with the ships either during build or whilst in service. The RBL Crownhill Branch has offered the use of their Club for the third year running.

I have received a request from Corporal Michelle Shipton, Royal Air Force Waddington, who is writing a history of the 'Y' Service Trades and is interesting in talking to anyone who served in these trades in the Royal Air Force, especially at Royal Air Force Waddington.. If you have any Branch Members who fit this bill and are willing to talk to Corporal Shipton please let me know and I will pass their details on.
 
Kind Regards,
