Celebrating 160+ Years
HMS Conway School Ship 1859 – 1974
The club exists to foster social relationships between former cadets of the training school ship HMS Conway. If you are an Old Conway and not yet a member we would strongly urge you to join so you can get back in touch with your old chums.
Captain Neil L Smith RD AFNI 1963-65
Welcome to the new Club Website.
I recently took over as President after Acting President for a number of months.
It is a great honour to be your President and when one looks back at the list of Presidents over the years I am very humbled to be in this position.
It is our intention to keep the Club up to-date and in line with member’s wishes. With this in mind a number of gradual changes are taking place within the Club, one of which is the new website. The Teaser Club, Shop purchases, AGM/Dinner Tickets are included in our new system. Please explore the site and see all the things that are now incorporated into the Site and its links to other sites including ‘’hmsconway.org’’.
Last year we had the 160th Anniversary of the School in London which was a very successful event. Even the British weather allowed us to enjoy the sunshine. Many Guests were able to visit Trinity House and also the guild hall of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, HQS Wellington.
This year we are holding our Annual Dinner & AGM in Llandudno where we are joining with the Friends of the Conway and the new commemorative plaque will be unveiled at Plas Newydd, the Ship’s and our last home.
Events take place throughout the world at local Branch Level and I encourage Branch Secretaries to let us know about these events so that it reaches a wider audience. This could encourage OC’s to visit your area and attend.
I would like to thank Neil Grayson [71-74] for all the work in helping to produce this new site.
If you are not a member of the Club, I encourage you join.
