HMS Illustrious

It was a great privilege to welcome veterans of HMS Illustrious to St James on Thursday, January 18th for their annual Remembrance Service. It was led by Fr Ray Jones RN, the first chaplain of Illustrious IV. It was moving service in which thanks were given for old shipments, living and departed. Members of the Association then had lunch at Vintners. The church was also presented with two photographs of Illustiouis IV and Illustrious V, in gratitude for the church's links with the Association. We are grateful and your presence among was a blessing. Thank you for coming, and see you again next year!

PS there are some pictures of the service in the gallery
