Smile Sam Watson

Just a brief introduction.
I served in the Royal Navy from 1951 to 1962, my first ship was the County Class 8" cruiser HMS Cumberland.
I am now the Chairman of the HMS Cumberland Association.
The Association members all served on the 15th ship (1926 to 1959) or the current Type 22 frigate HMS Cumberland, or direct family members of men who served on the ship. the ladies are also eligble for membership.
The Association is affiliated to the current ship.
The Association publishes a quarterly magazine The Cumberlander, sent free to all members.
The Association undertakes free of charge any reseach associated with men who served primarily on the County Class ship.
Our annual reunion will take place in Chatham during the weekend of April 26th, members, their ladies or direct family or friends will be attending.

Hello Sam and welcome to SN. My dad was on Cumberland during the battle of the River Plate and I am sure I spoke with you about a year ago while out walking the dog in Capstone Park.
I said I would pass on to you any photos etc. I found in my dads collection regarding the Cumberland. I haven't forgotten and as I am taking early retirement soon should actually have the time to sort them out.
Regards Trevor
