Ark Royal Traps

Thank you granville. Wonderful stuff. Is this a clip from 'Sailor' when Wilf Graham was Ark's Captain? He was our CO in HMS Scarborough in the Dartmouth Training Squadron.

Looks like I'm an ancient then.

First helicopter to gain QM on.

If starter sticks, open door strike sharply with hide face hammer, dislodge diaphragm - Leonardes Major kicks into life. Ahhhhhhhh Whirl Wind 7's

All those choppers - must be the squadrons getting their rabbits ashore

And the deck landings must surely be at Ships company mealtimes ........ ;)

Good movie otherwise, brought some memories of goofing when I served in somewhat smaller ships.

Despite being made before I was born I still hold that Sailor was one of the best TV series to come out of the beeb. RIght down to the Bish (R.I.P)being one of the first people to swear on national TV. Out on DVD if any of you guys are interested in getting a sentimental copy. The special edition even comes with its own flight deck smell.
