Russian Federation Ship 'Perekop' Cocktail Party
The Baltic Naval Institute
with the help of BRNC hosted a Cocktail Party on board Perekop
on Saturday lunch time. A lot of Cadets spoke English
although few senior officers did. There were several
translators on hand together with more Vodka than we have ever
seen. A cold buffet produced the best tomatoes ever tasted
and a selection of meats and fish, both often raw, but oh so
Under an hour after the party had started, it was commented that
the Russians were concerned that we were not eating much food,
and that by then, if it was a totally Russian party, all the
food would have gone.
We explained that it was lunch time and we were having a great
One Cadet asked if it was
normal to have Coal Trains (Steam), we pointed out that this was
a tourist attraction. To the Russians Dartmouth must have
seemed like a 'Disney Island' visited and populated by wealthy
people eating and drinking. The group of people are (left to right) Nigel Way,
Captain First Rank Alexander Alexandrovich Ignatiev (Captain of
the Perekop), Iris
Pritchard, Commander Richard King (BRNC), Peter Gossage (Head of
Languages, BRNC), Dave Cawley, Jonathan Hawkins, John Whitby.
St Saviour’s Church in
Dartmouth was packed last Sunday evening for the ordination
service of the Reverend Michael Macey who has served as curate
here for the past year.
This was the first time an ordination service had been held in
St Saviour’s and the parish was pleased to welcome the Right
Reverend John Ford, Bishop of Plymouth to officiate at the
service, which marked Michael’s entry as a priest in the Church
Michael is following a family tradition – his father has been
priest at Cockington for the past 18 years and the congregation
on Sunday included many of his parishioners. Michael expects to
stay in Dartmouth, providing support to the Reverend Simon
Wright, for the next three to four years.
Yvonne Cottam on
behalf of the Dartmouth Community College, the day was
bad weather. However, even the easterly winds and rain could not damp their
sprits as these photos show!
This is the first of an occasional
feature of what to do, where to go and where to eat around
Dartmouth. Where Dartmouth dot TV is invited we will give
a mini report. Sir Geoffrey Newman Bt. met us and said
that in Spring 2000 he set about the restoration of the garden
established in 1896 by his ancestor, Robert Lydston Newman,
Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, on land which had
already been in the family for almost 100 years. Robert’s eldest
son, Sir Ralph Newman Bt. extended the garden, adding to the
collection of semi-tropical plants gathered from the four
corners of the world. When you visit, before you know it,
you’ll have climbed high above the ocean, you’ll have reached
another country and feel at home in another time ………..
