“The past is a lesson, the present a gift, the future is our motivation…“
As we now enter our 12thyear under the helm of Chairman ex WO(MW) Dixie Dean MBE, he has stepped down to focus on regaining his health and the Association is now under the guidance of our new Chairman Taff Reader, and the association Treasurer, ex Lieutenant George Turnbull RN. The association continues to adapt to the ever-increasing membership. While the number of ex serving members continues to grow, we continue to reach out further to increase the number of serving members through our Membership Secretary CPO(MW) Sean Slee who is also currently serving in the Naval Service. The website which holds an excellent plethora of information and photos of Mine Warfare past and present, is edited, managed and maintained by our webmaster ex PO(MW) Ronnie Barker. To add to this the Association Facebook Page managed by Shaun Keen continues to provide instant communication between the memberships.The MWA remains as strong as ever to achieve its objectives of:
- To organise a reunion for members once a year.
- To support regional events where possible.
- To promote links and maintain comradeship between members and to keep the ‘Mine Warfare Spirit’ alive.
- To develop identity based MW Association merchandise.
