30 Yrs ago I was standing on the same spot Elvis stood when he was doing the diving scenes at Acapulco....sipping my Pina Colada and contemplating the green zone up in the hills of Acapulco, and hoping they refilled my booze fridge in the Hotel (El Presidente) that the Government so nicely provided for my use(s) :D
I think I was on my way to HMS Dolphin for Submarine training having just left HMS Rame Head alongside at HMS Excellent
