Horizon Pension Plan moved to FAS

The assets of Horizon Pension Plan have been transferred to the government FAS. The main effect of this is that you will now receive at the most 90% of the expected pension.

Hard times for Navigators.

Unable to afford the price of his season ticket, this ex-Horizon navigator was forced to seek additional employment as a Greek dance instructor and part-time Lone Ranger impersonator, albeit with a very fragrant Tonto. Syros, Greece, circa 2005.

I wasn't there myself, I was at the refit in Immingham then I went down to Poole where the Seaway Labrador required adjustments to its Magnavox. Simon Frobisher might be able to assist as I beleive that he knows where the...

The Seaway Labrador in Bremerhaven

Hola Ian,

The Seaway Labrador was in Bremerhaven in February 1991 and emerged from the refit as the Simon Labrador.

He said that the result had been mailed to all members, but I didn't receive it. He was not in a position to provide ...
