Comments + Vindi details It is with great sadness that Patricia Davis a member of the Vindicatrix Association of Western Australia, passed away on Friday 8th April. Pat was a most loved member of the Association, but to all Vindi boys, Pat's father was Captain Dudley Mason GC, the Captain of the Ohio that saved Malta in the Pedestal convoy in WW2 and gave the Merchant Navy Service the respect that it was entitled to.

Comments + Vindi details Can I remind all TSVA Membership that your annual subs are now due. Also, quite a few of the UK Membership who pay by Standing Order through their bank have failed to contact their bank to increase their subs to 7 per annum. Those who have not yet done so will only receive two copies of the Vindi News during the coming year.

Comments + Vindi details A Happy New Year to all Vindi Shipmates. If anyone picks up on the original TSVA website on the Freeserve server, can I remind you that it is no longer being updated. Our current site is shown in the header to this entry and is always shown in a strapline at the foot of Page 1 of each issue of the Vindi News . Can I also remind Members and any others who read this entry, that I'm still available to obtain copies of seamen's MN service records from the National Archives at Kew. All I need is a Discharge Book No., or if that's forgotten or unknown, a full name and date of birth.
