Default Royal Navy 'Welcome Aboard' booklets

G'Day All

Over the many years I've had an interest in all thing Navy, I have acquired a large amount of the 'Welcome Aboard' Booklets and other PR stuff from many navies.

The Royal Navy is no exception.

Now, I have a Facebook page (if you want to view it https://www.facebook.com/groups/234324750054650/) that I post these booklets on, but I thought you guys might like to see some of these booklets, and if I have it, the story behind them.

The first one I'll post is the Royal Yacht Britannia

HMY Britannia (A-00) 1986


I had the honour and privilege to board HMY Britannia (A-00) while she was in Fremantle in 1986, while she was heading to Sydney for the RAN 75th Anniversary Review in October 1986. This booklet is now a rare item, at least in my part of the world.

Enjoy

HMS Invincible (R-05) 1983

HMS Invincible (R-05) visited Fremantle on 3 November 1983. This was after her service in the Falklands War of 1982 and the Australian Labour Government cancelled buying this ship to replace the decommissioned Australian Carrier HMAS Melbourne (R/CVS-21) in early 1983. The crowds came out to see this new Veteran of the Falkland War, and to see the now legendary Sea Harrier.

Hello Battlestar and many thanks for adding to this thread. It would be great if others could get their scanners to work and copy any of the booklets in their possession. They are a valuable source of information.
I did spells in the Portland Squadron on two different ships and I know that we had copies of these booklets to give out during port visits, when the ship was open to visitors. They were also printed in different languages, for issue during foreign port visits.
I believe they were printed by Her Majesty's Stationary Office for the Ministry Of Defence.

What a good idea. I can imagine little lads toddling off clutching their booklets. Tis a pity that such were not made available when I was in SUPERB when showing the flag on the A&WI station. Perhaps the opening page would carry a stern warning for visitors to watch where they put their feet. We couldn't want any of our multitudinous cockroaches to come to any harm.

RFA Fort Austin (A-386) 1997 (RN Ocean Wave '97 Cruise)


The Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) Fort Austin (A-386) was part of the Royal Navy's 1997 Ocean Wave Cruise to the far east. The Fleet, centred around HMAS Illustrious (R-06) was in Hong Kong 30 June 1997 when the former UK colony was handed back to the People's Republic of China. Afterwards the fleet arrived at their only Australian port of call, Fremantle, where RFA Fort Austin was open for tours.

Throughout the cruise the Royal Navy ships that took part in Ocean Wave '97 handed out these purpose printed 'Welcome Aboard' booklets for the fleet, but by the time they got to Fremantle, the major fleet units had run out, but the supply ships, thankfully, did not.

Oh, they handed out postcards too

All,

Here's one of mine.

My second last ship in the RN.

Apologies for the quality, I had to reduce it to upload it

I suppose it's a sign of the times that the booklets are now a double sided A4 page these days and not the true 'booklets' of old?

Regards,

Craig.

Back up into the loft, I`ve some from the Rosyth Navy Day back in 1960s and collected a few booklets from ships visited then---it was my first view of female sailors aboard a Swedish warship on a visit to the port--never thought that the RN ships would someday have female crew members.

Hi Battlestar,

It would have been between May 07 and Jan 09.

I picked it up during a families day when I was serving on her during the dates above.

Not sure of the exact date, but I can offer an 19 month window

Regards,

Craig.

When were these booklets first introduced? The usual introduction used to be, get your kit & hammock stowed, you've got the middle watch.!

Not sure when they were first introduced, but when on the Undaunted c1968 to 1970, we visited Bordeaux and a Welcome Aboard booklet, written in French, was given to visitors to the ship. An English version was also carried, for handing out during UK port visits, of which there were quite a few.

HMS BERKELEY was the 12th of the 13 Hunt Class MHSCs (Mine Hunter Sweeper Coastal). Thanks to a friend who commanded her still-completing predecessor, HMS ATHERSTONE, I was able to attend her launch at Vosper Thornycroft in Woolston, Southampton on 3 Dec 1986 before the official announcement of my appointment as her first CO. As a quid pro quo, he asked to be invited along as he and and all the other first COs had missed the launch of their own ships.

After taking Command of HMS BERKELEY the following year, I commissioned her on South Railway Jetty in Portsmouth Naval base on 14 Jan 1988 in the presence of several veterans from her WW II namesake, the Hunt Class destroyer bombed and sunk during the disastrous Dieppe Raid in Aug 1942. We then took her through Part IV Trials, worked her up and deployed to the Gulf for eight months for Operation ARMILLA ACCOMPLICE (later called CIMNEL) just as the Iran/Iraq Tanker War was winding down. I handed over Command to another friend shortly after our return in 1989.

On a freezing cold morning on 28 Feb 2001, I was back at South Railway Jetty for the handover of BERKELEY to the Royal Hellenic Navy; a prolonged ceremony that included Greek Orthodox Church priests sprinkling holy water all over the ship's decks and whacking her sailors with palm fronds. She still serves in the Greek Navy as HS KALLISTO.

Thanks EX-WEM for the information

Oldsalt, The oldest 'Welcome Aboard' I have is a USS Enterprise (CV-6) from her time in Puget Sound Shipyard from mid 1945. CV-6 released another booklet when she arrived in New York in late 1945.

HMS Norfolk (D-21) 1979 .


This booklet is from HMS Norfolk (D-21) 1979 visit to Fremantle, the visit itself was made to commemorate 150 years of the founding of Western Australia.

During HMS Norfolk's visit to Fremantle in 1979, she had an unwelcome milestone - she became the first warship afloat to hold a Court Martial in over 10 years.

RFA Diligence (A-132) 1997
(RN Ocean Wave '97 Cruise)


The Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) Diligence (A-132) was part of the Royal Navy's 1997 Ocean Wave Cruise to the far east. The Fleet, centred around HMAS Illustrious (R-06) was in Hong Kong 30 June 1997 when the former UK colony was handed back to the People's Republic of China. Afterwards the fleet arrived at their only Australian port of call, Fremantle, where RFA Diligence, although closed for tours, were still handing out these Booklets.

Throughout the cruise the Royal Navy ships that took part in Ocean Wave '97 handed out these purpose printed 'Welcome Aboard' booklets for the fleet, but by the time they got to Fremantle, the major fleet units had run out, but the auxiliary ships, thankfully, did not.

RFA Diligence was the fleet repair ship and, if need be, salvage tug. and was a very busy ship during the deployment seeing to the repair needs of the Ocean Wave Task Force.
