Tyneside 114 Christmas Reunion 2009

With John Potts away in Australia the responsibility for organising the annual Tyneside reunion for ex and current members was handed over to Bob Johnson.

Most of the usual suspects still managed to attend despite John’s absence, thanks to Bob’s hard organisational efforts.

 With 2010 being the 40 th anniversary of the Clubs involvement in the Gun Rocks project some of the current active members were particularly keen to gain first hand accounts and knowledge from some of those attendees who had been originally involved in this project back in 1970. Bill Smith was able to share some of his recollections of this fascinating chapter in the Club’s history. Memories were helped by the circulation of an old copy of Kendal McDonalds book ‘The Wreck Detectives’ which gives an excellent account of the clubs Gun Rock activities. Hopefully by the next year, Tyneside 114 current membership will have added a new and exciting chapter to the Gun Rocks story.
