The TTBF is being held this weekend at Henley on Thames. CFVA (London Branch) will be exhibiting there. There will be many boats of interest on display, including MTB 102 and various Dunkirk veterans. Please come and join Peter Bickmore and myself and enjoy the Festival.

Hi there,

Went to the above on Saturday, believe the CFV was there Sunday? sorry to have had to miss you...had a fantastic day, went aboard MTB102 and was invited for the sail past that afternoon, which was great and most unexpected! also went aboard and met Bob Morely and son Leon onboard coastal motorboat no 9, the fore runner even before, MTB102 of our coastal craft! she looked great and caused much interest, mostly same question, despite being on the information board, of how did the launch the torpedo! as we know, fired off the stern, vessel hard to port or starboard and torpedo then came ahead, clearly see why that was changed by the time of MTB 102...also saw ST 1502...a great day as I say and gathering of historic craft.

Hello JohnK

I'm very sorry you missed us - we were there all 3 days, as you can see from the photos that Kevin has posted. Our tent was very close to MTB 102, so you could not have looked very hard! Also on Saturday, Peter Bickmore and his family joined us, so it would have been very good to see you.
