Preliminary planning is well underway for the HMAS Vendetta Reunion in Mildura for May 2018. It will be held over the weekend, commencing with:
Meet and greet :- Friday 18th
Formal Dinner :- Saturday 19th
Farewell BBQ: - Sunday 20th.
This HMAS Vendetta Reunion was originally started by the first Commissioning Crew and has been running ever since for quite a few years. As age is catching up with everyone the numbers are beginning to decline and as a result these early sailors would like the tradition to keep going and have asked that the reunion be open to all that have served on this mighty destroyer over her life time in order for this marvelous tradition to carry on. So come on Matelots let’s keep this legacy going.
The letter below contains further information on this event along with the registration details and form.
