1982 Timeline


The content of this Timeline and all links in it were compiled by Mark Griffin in the early days when he was populating the old website and are not meant to be the full history. There are many ships and units and events that are not mentioned.

This timeline and all content are links from, and reside on, the old server and will not be updated. It is felt that it is better to have this than nothing at all. Plus it is a good Timeline and a lot of hard work was put into compiling it.

It may be that in the future it will be able to be updated if and when the Timeline and Garden of Remembrance are transfered to the current website companies control.
