    Joined up in '87 two weeks before the Herald of Free Enterprise sunk. I got the message and joined submarines.
    I've served on T-boats, Upholders, then T-boats again, with a brief excursion to bombers.
    Currently land-locked in Kandahar, working in a field hopital with our Canadian cousins.
    I've been trying to explain to them what RDP means
