David Irwin is a TRUNA member. He was a communications rate, acting as first point of contact between the ship launching the boarding party and any potentially violating vessel. This was carried out in “Area Iceman”, the Adriatic coast of the former Yugoslavia. He also served on inland board and search operations on the Danube and Tisza rivers. This involved smaller patrol craft of the Romanian and Hungarian navies. The Hungarians are a proud nation – they no longer have a coastline, but they still have a (tiny) navy!

This event is a pub lunch. The pub opens at 12:00. Please order your food at the bar by 12:15. The presentation will start at 12:30, and lunch will be served at 13:20.
