Re: Gryphon Trophy winner for 2016 challenges
FLEET ORDER 1701-A, 15 January 2016
The results have been tabulated for the three cup challenges held in Second Fleet for 2016. Winning two challenges and with a strong second place in the third, the GRYPHON TROPHY is hereby presented to HMS VALKYRIE SD-355.
In accordance with Black Sphinx Cup rules, Valkyrie personnel are authorized to wear the FLEET EXCELLENCE AWARD with gold E and HMS Valkyrie’s results have been submitted to the 1SL Intelligence Office to be considered for the navy-wide Black Sphinx Cup.
Well done, Valkyries! To all ships: the cup challenges will continue in 2017; let this inspire and challenge you to excellence!
The Tradition Lives!
