Falmouth Royal Naval Association marks 30th anniversary

Falmouth Royal Naval Association will mark its 30th anniversary with two days of celebration.
During the weekend of September 22 and 23, the Falmouth branch will celebrate 30 years since it was re-commissioned.
An original Falmouth branch, believed to have existed in the 1950s and most likely known as the Royal Naval Old Comrades’ Association, had been de-commissioned and closed, presumably due to a lack of members.
However, on September 23, 1982 the branch was re-commissioned and has been going strong ever since. On Saturday, September 22 this year there will be a celebratory lunch at the Falmouth Hotel, with people asked to arrive at 12.30pm for 1pm, with tickets at £18 per head.
The following day, on the exact date of the 30th anniversary, there will be a civic parade from The Moor at 10.45am that will march to the Church of King Charles the Martyr.
The mayor’s civic service will then take place at 11am, with mayor Geoffrey Evans allowing the branch Standard to be re-dedicated as part of this. Following the service, the parade will re-form and march to the Watersports Centre, where the mayor will take the salute.
