Despite heavy rain and a midge-infested Ardentinny beach, stalwart supporters of Argyll Against Trident (AAT) turned out for a 4th July Peace Picnic. AAT Convenor, Rob Bray explained the group’s rationale and young and older alike enjoyed a fabulous picnic, the centre piece of which was a ‘Bairns not Bombs’ chocolate cake donated by The Chocolate Tree.
On 6th June 2015 Tony Rodaway, nephew of D-Day veteran Billy Rodaway, travelled to the site of HMS Armadillo in Ardentinny to unveil a memorial plaque dedicated to Harry Smallman, Ken Oakley and all Royal Navy Commandos who participated in the planning and execution of the D-Day landings in 1944. The short ceremony and memorial plaque also paid tribute to Seaman William (Billy) Rodaway and Bob Bull and the crew of HMS Prins Albert with whom they served.
The plaque will be incorporated within the commando memorial cairn at Shepherd’s Point shortly.
Information on their outstanding service can be found here:
