London Valour 50th Anniversary

Today 09th April is the 50th anniversary of the tragic loss of the London Valour at Genoa. It was hoped that a group of us would pay our respects on Thursday 09th. Preparations have been well advanced, the British Consul in Genoa has been fantastic as before in organising with the various official departments for the event.
As many know we went out in 2010 for the 40th anniversary and if you look back in the achives of 2010 you will find articles and photographs of that event.
It is with great disappointment that the eevent(s) have had to be cancelled because of the Corona Virus problems worldwide.
