CALLING ALL HMNZS BLACKPOOL PERSONNEL FROM THE 1968/69 FAR EAST COMMISSION

REMEMBERING THE 74 LOST FROM USS FRANK EVANS – 3 JUNE 1969

LEST WE FORGET

74

Brent Bramley has made initial enquiries for the production of a Lapel Badge based on the above photo to commemorate the loss of the 74 from the USS Frank E Evans on 3 June 1969. This badge is suitable for wearing with your Civilian Dress on Formal and Informal occasions.

Anticipated cost, which includes postage to your home address from Australia is NZ$15, or, within Australia AU$12. A minimum of fifty pre paid orders is required, or the costs will rise considerably. Payment within New Zealand can be made direct to my Co-Operative Bank (PSIS) Account, and will not attract Overseas Transfer Fees. Payment in Australia can be made direct to my Westpac Account.

Expressions of interest are called for from all Blackpool shipmates of the 1968 -1969 Far East Trip. Please PM me, or email: brentbramley@optusnet.com.au – advising how many Badges you want.

Can you all also bring this notice to the attention of those shipmates who are not on internet, as I’m sure that all of us would like to pay our respects to the 74 of the Frank E Evans each and every time we put our tiddly Civvie rig on!!

    Thanks for posting this – much appreciated

    Well done Brent, what a good idea. People will notice the ’74’ and ask questions. (I wear the UK badge for 3 years service, (no medal !) It is rather non-descript and the only person asking about it was Intellectually handicapped)
