The Friends of

HMS Trincomalee

The Summer 2020 Quarterdeck has been sent out as an email attachment to our members whose addresses we have been given. It looks at the time our ship was at Falmouth before the First World War, and the requirements of a youngster setting up as a midshipman in the early nineteenth century.

It also contains details of our private Facebook group.

All social events are suspended until further notice.

On Wednesday 20th March 2019 the Friends held a party to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the arrival of HMS Trincomalee in Portsmouth, England at the end of her maiden voyage from Trincomalee, Ceylon (modern day Sri Lanka).

This included a ten minute video with original music of 3D photographs (anaglyph glasses required) of the ship. The video is on YouTube - a link is on the left.

Until the end of May 2019 there was a display about HMS Trincomalee at the FitzHugh Library in Middleton-in-Teesdale.

The Library now holds copies of all the Quarterdeck magazines. Their website can be accessed by the following link:
