Re: HMS Inskip
Inskip is now DCSA, run by VT.
It was an FAA airfield in WW2, and is now home to the Sea Cadet Training Centre INSKIP, (TS Nightjar) and a rather flat 9 hole golf course which floods every winter. Bloody difficult getting a good swing wearing a life jacket.
Its still like being on another planet.
A lot of the old and bold Chiefs who were there in 95 when it changed over to civvy stayed on to work for SERCO. They had an Ex Royal Sigs major as the RO2 Manager and an ex 2 1/2 eng as the Serco manager.
The last man to serve there on watch in the Control Room as RN now works for VT IN Cyprus. It took him months to get out of the habit of wearing his No8s to work, but he probably just did it to annoy the Hobbit.Not a real Captain, more an off-watch hooligan
