A wonderful true story of the kind that makes one feel a deep glow about once being part of the Royal Navy . With AB Simon it is one of the features that made the RN such a unique service and to hear he will be remembered this way is terrific . I recently attended a re-union / memorial service in Sydney where I recalled the S/M 4 squadron mascot , Nigger , a black and white dog who attached himself to the squadron until his death . Although he has no memorial there I would like to see one . Meanwhile RIP AB Simon .
