The Goldfish Club is a worldwide association of people who have jumped by parachute from an aircraft into the water, or whose aircraft crashed in the water, and whose lives were saved by a life jacket, inflatable dinghy, or similar device. The Goldfish Club badge shows a white-winged goldfish flying over two symbolic blue waves. The main aim of the club is 'to keep alive the spirit of comradeship arising from the mutual experience of members surviving, "coming down in the drink".'
Issue No. 40 mentions the passing of Sir Winston Churchill and mentions "A telegram of sympathy was sent to Lady Churchill on behalf of all Members of the Club. It was fitting that the P.L.A. launch which carried Sir Winston's body from Tower Pier to Festival Hall Pier was the "Havengore", which for several years has been the centre of the Club's Annual Service of Remembrances."
