Remembrance Line supports Nepalese earthquake appeal

Last Thursday evening (28th May) RLA members were privileged to have Gurkha community leader Dhan Gurung attend our monthly meeting and deliver a talk on the latest situation in Nepal after the recent devastating Earthquake. He updated us on the fantastic response to the earthquake appeal and described the complexities of distributing the aid, a massive task in itself. To round the evening off RLA took the opportunity to present Dhan with a cheque for £300 - our humble contribution to the huge relief operation in the disaster area. The unveiling of the new Gurkha memorial later on this summer will be all the more poignant. We wish the Gurkha community and their families in Nepal the very best for the speedy recovery of their homeland.

'Artemis' Visits Folkestone Harbour

Excitement in Shepway yesterday (Tues 7th July)  when the former Swedish Whaler 'Artemis' berthed for a couple of days at Folkestone Harbour en route the Boulogne Sea Festival. Several of our members asked to be allowed access to the harbour arm to get a better view but predictably were refused permission.

Not to worry, some great views of the vessel were available from elsewhere around the Stade area and above. 'Artemis' appears to be berthed on the pier ok. Thus also proving a point - in case there was any doubt!  Take a look at the following spec. Her draught is 3.5 metres- that of the classic steamers/motor vessels which once were a familiar sight berthed in Folkestone Harbour. More about information here - at Folkestone 3.jpg

We find it amazing that there was no advanced publicity about this interesting event. Not even the town council knew about it. It might make the local papers you never know!
