Other Contacts

Here are details, supplied by Mick Mathews, of some useful web sites for those interested in Naval Matters:

Nelsons Navy ------ This site has many interesting facts about Nelsons Navy,

and has a very in-depth factual account of the Battle of Trafalgar, very topical as the bicentenary is 21st Oct 2005.

Navy News   ------- This site carries most of the info that the monthly magazine displays,

news about our current fleet, what they are doing etc, a good paper to buy if you're ex Navy.

MOD Reunited ----- this site leads on to many other topics. Initially started for old shipmates to contact each other,

also leads on to RAF and Army sites.

HMS Ganges Association ------ This site a must for any one who served at HMS Ganges, Shotley Gate, Ipswich.

Many other links, including the Ganges Museum, which is situated along the sea wall at Shotley,

part of the Marina complex, overlooking the estuary's of the Stour and Orwell at Harwich/Felixstowe,

the museum is open week-ends April to October and public holidays, parties can book by appointment for a guided tour.

Shotley is a very pleasant day out for the young and not so young.
