BOURENMOUTH, DORSET, 11 November 2011.
80 year old Mr Roy Pavely (wearing beret) the Secretary of the HMS Phoebe Association travelled all the way from Didcot in Oxfordshire with his wife to lay a wreath at The HMS Phoebe memorial stone in Bournemouth Gardens. They were joined by Mr David Fox (Grey hair and beard), Chairman of the TS Phoebe Sea Cadet Corps and other members of the Phoebe family. HMS Phoebe has a long association with the town and the local Sea Cadet Corps is named after the ship. There have been seven HMS Phoebes since the first which saw action at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The two old sailors then explained why they were having their own private service off to the side on Armistice Day.
