2015 Peregrine Trophy Awards

On Friday 7 May 2015 the annual Peregrine Trophy Awards Ceremony was held on HMS Ocean at the Greenwich Royal Naval College.

More than three hundred guests were invited to the event. Our representatives on the day were: Maurice ‘Jan’ Larcombe and his wife Doreen, Ray and Pam Whitehouse and Mike and Jean Keeling.

Photographs of the event are below. Special thanks to Ray Whitehouse for taking the photographs of the event. (In between supping lots of rum?)
