Welcome to the website of the Flying Fox Association.

The FFA was formed in 1992 with membership open to all present and past ship’s company members of

HMS Flying Fox, Severn Division RNVR/RNR, Bristol

Current membership stands at around 100 and ranges from ABs to Commodores. We also have contact with 50 associates who, mainly due to distance away, do not participate in FFA events with correspondents as far afield as Spain, New Zealand and British Columbia.

New members are always welcome and you are certain to find old friends and shipmates. Contact and joining details are on the website.

We meet about 4 times a year with other events organised as required or suggested by members.

The website is available to allow details of the FFA to be shared and to allow the large historical archive from HMS Flying Fox, Severn Division RNVR and RNR, and predecessors to be made available.

John Beardsley CMEM(M) RNR (Retd), Chairman
