A message from the Fly Navy Federation Chairman
Dear fellow members of the Fly Navy Federation,
In these trying times, it is clear that a lot of the burden and worry is falling on the shoulders of the elderly. To be a bit more parochial and in the finest traditions of the Fleet Air Arm (and also now very much in line with the latest government request for volunteers, answered by over 400,000 people in 24 hours!), I wonder if some of you might consider picking up the phone on the odd occasion whilst we are all sitting at home under lockdown. A simple 5 minute phone call and bit of banter with a fellow member of your own Association might be all it needs to lift their spirits.
Time to gather round our shipmates perhaps?
