His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Earlier this year the Society mourned the death of our Patron, shortly before his 100th birthday. A personal friend of one of our founders, Sir Peter Scott, and a keen conservationist, Prince Philip was our patron almost from the beginning and expressed a real interest in what we were up to. In 2018, when he stepped back from formal duties, we received a nice letter from his secretary saying that he always read Sea Swallow and wished to remain as Patron. We have always been proud to have had the support of such an extraordinary man and he will be sadly missed.
75th Anniversary Dinner
The Society is pleased to announce that our 75th anniversary will be marked by a celebratory dinner on Saturday 27th November 2021. It will be held at the Wardroom, HMS NELSON, Portsmouth with an entertaining pre-dinner lecture and then a traditional meal. All are welcome, along with partners and guests. Please contact the Secretary for more details.
