The Weapons Systems Tuning Group website is intended to provide information on the history and personnel of WSTG and keep friends and colleagues up to date on reunion activities.
Our Christmas Get-together will be held on Tuesday 12th December 2017 from 11.30am at Alexandra Bowling Club Northern Parade Portsmouth. It will be in the usual format with drinks from the bar, a buffet lunch and a quality seasonal raffle.
Without blowing our bugle too hard we think it is quite an achievement to be holding this event for the 14th year at the same venue, with our same caterer, Sally Gissing and almost with the same organizing committee. This year the cost is only £10 per person, because there is a substantial contribution from our ‘WSTG account’.
Our usual flyer will be sent by post or email advising on payment to those who regularly attend. For those who have never attended any of our events, but may like to renew contact with WSTG colleagues, please use the website method of communication.
Christmas Reunion 2017
We regret that we have to report that Ken Hoad passed away on 11th October aged 93 after a long battle with cancer. His funeral will be held at the Oaks Crematorium in Havant on Tuesday 24th October at 1pm and afterwards at Northney Farm, Hayling Island. The family have asked that donations in Ken’s memory are made to The Rowans Hospice Home Care Team. Our sympathies are with his wife of 70 years, Dot, and the rest of his family.
We have also received further sad news that George Durant passed away on 14th October at the age of 85. Our thoughts are with Fay, Timothy and Katherine. His funeral service will be held at 10am on Friday 27th October at the Oaks Crematorium, Bartons Road, Havant PO9 5NA. Family flowers only, any donations kindly send to alzheimersresearchuk.org or via Barrells Funeral Directors, 245 Fratton Road, Portsmouth.
It is hoped as many old WSTG friends as possible will be able to attend both these services.
