    We have a annual get together of ex Submariners mostly held at the old Submarine base.Used to called Hugo Biermann.Not sure what is now as its a mess.
    Last year was the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first boat from France.A normal get together was organised which would obviously focus on the 50th anniversary.Ex Submariners were flying in from all corners of the world.Well 2 months before the get together everything was cancelled as the Chief of the Navy and Min of Defence was not "personally" invited.Well that was the lame excuse given.
    The guys quickly made arrangements and it was held at the Fish Hoek Moth Hall.All present Submariners were told they are not allowed to attend.
    An ex Admiral made a speech and it was said that the Submarine Flotilla IS NOT RECOGNISED pre 1994.

    So expect anniversaries starting 1994.Hahaha.Guess the 50th will not happen.There will be nothing left.
