Forgotten Fighters
Thursday, 24 July 2014 00:00
Forgotten FightersForgotten Fighters, The First World War at Sea exhibition opens at the National Maritime Museum on 2 August, exploring the naval and maritime dimensions of the conflict.

The horrors of the Western Front have long dominated our understanding of those years, and yet the war at sea was fought on an epic scale and with terrible human loss. Forgotten Fighters foregrounds the personal stories of those who participated through a wide range of objects including weaponry, photographs, medals and ship models.

The gallery takes visitors from the heroism of merchant mariners to the shattering realities of naval battle, and from the Falkland Islands and the Mediterranean to the Atlantic and the North Sea.

RYA: Cash for members
Thursday, 17 July 2014 00:00
RYA: Cash for membersRYA: Cash for members WITH a brand new look, the RYA is encouraging RYA recognised Clubs and Training Centres, and marinas around the country to sign up as RYA Joining Points.

The scheme allows those clubs, training centres and marinas signed up to the programme to earn commission for promoting RYA personal membership and recruiting RYA members.

“We have found that many club members and customers think they are personal members of the RYA because their organisation is associated with the RYA, but unfortunately this is not the case, which means they are missing out on all the great benefits personal membership to the RYA offers.

“The idea of the Joining Point scheme is to encourage clubs, training centres and marinas to promote RYA personal membership whilst receiving a commission bonus that can be fed back in to their organisation, it’s a win, win for everyone,” explained Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.
