European Naval Christian Link Up Secretary –

Cdr Christopher Mather RN (Rtd) 


JCM by Collinson

Christopher joined the RN in 1944 at the age of 13 and retired at the end of 1983. Mary joined the WRNS in 1953 & left when she married Christopher in 1963. They had each joined NCF in the 1950s (UNCF as it was then) and were very involved in the houseparties & holidays over the years, which is how they know so many other retired members and their families.  A year after Christopher left the service in 1984, they heard that the NCF Office staff of four (then at 2B South Street, Gosport) was, through sickness & house-moves, down to just one – Mrs Yvonne Coupe who was the Assistant Sec. They offered to help out for a month or two until the Trustees found a new General Secretary and actually ended up staying for 23 years.
