Welcome to the official web site of OCAAA - The Old Caledonia Artificer Apprentices’
Association. Within these pages you will find information relevant to our Association
and also HMS Caledonia - Rosyth’s College of Knowledge on the Hill - where the majority
of our members dedicated their youth to the pursuit of engineering knowledge, alongside
other, more leisurely, pastimes (as some of the pages reveal).
We hope that you enjoy your OCAAA browsing experience, but should you be unable to
find that which you seek, or experience technical problems with the site, please
do not hesitate to drop Spyda an email. You’ll find an email link to him at the
bottom of each page. Please note that our Members Corner is restricted to OCAAA
members only - so if you want the key to that particular door you must join the association!
Planning for the next OCAAA Reunion is now well underway, with an event weekend spanning
9-10 May 2014 on the table. Mark your diaries now!
Reunion Secretary Don Smith has negotiated a deal for our accommodation and entertainment
at the Maidstone Hilton Hotel at a cost of £252:50 per couple (£202 singles) for
2 nights B&B, a 3 course dinner dance on the Saturday, a meeting on Sunday morning,
car parking and use of the on-site Health Club.
Full details and booking arrangements for this very special occasion
will be published in the JULY 2013 OCAAA Newsletter. Please do not try to book before
then, unless otherwise notified, as although the terms have been agreed, contracts
have yet to be signed.
