    HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH will enter Portsmouth harbour at 0710 on 16th Aug 17.

    Owing to this short notice, it is with much regret that I have to inform you that the Fort Blockhouse event has now been cancelled  for the Royal Naval Association members.

    On behalf of the Royal Navy, Capt Krosnar-Clarke and all the team my sincere apologies especially to those that have made arrangements.

     

    As originally explained in my last update it was originally envisaged that there would be no limit to ticket allocations for Fort Blockhouse. However, once the finer detail had been investigated it revealed that local traffic congestion and the infrastructure within F/Blockhouse plus large sections of the sea wall which had collapsed and  become unusable, due to the consequent H & S issues,  a decision was made to reduce attendance numbers to a level that could successfully managed  by Fort Blockhouse staff.

    The QE first entry team have provided RNA Central Office with 450 tickets for Fort Blockhouse and 50 for the Naval Base, over 670 applications were received and regrettably some applicants will be unsuccessful with their application.  I am currently in the process of obtaining addresses for the successful 500 and will arrange for the tickets to arrive with them by early next week.    

    Please would you be kind enough to strongly highlight to your members that security is very tight and entry will be by numbered ticket only which corresponds to the list provided by RNA Central Office to the Security staff.  Finally, please would you remind your membership not to turn up on the off chance of gaining entrance as this will only add to traffic congestion and they will still be denied entry.
