On 16th October, the FIMNT received a generous donation of £1000 towards the construction of the Lookout Gallery and Exhibition Hall from the Type 21 Club. Commander Les Smith presented the cheque to Chairman Richard Cockwell.

The Type 21 Club is an association which brings together former crew members of Royal Navy Type 21 frigates.

The Type 21s played an important role in the 1982 conflict with the HMS Ardent and HMS Antelope being lost in fighting.
