Sir.-I would like to appeal to all those people living in the Basing-stoke area who know what happened on October 28, 1664, to contact me with a view to them joining the Basingstoke branch of the Royal Marines Association.

We meet at the Naval Club, New Road, Basingstoke, on the first Wednesday of each month at 8pm. Our next meeting will be on June 7.

Once a Royal Marine always a Royal Marine!

-Tony Davie, Petty's Brook Road, Chineham.
