Noticed all the speculation in the papers recently as more and more speculate, so now it's my turn. Had a boozy diver oppo once[I'm not a diver] and when in his cups he told me Crabbe had lost his life whilst defusing oyster mines left over from WW2 hence the head and arms missing as the mines are small[I know nothing about mines] Took no notice except next day he rounded on me and asked if he mentioned anything re.Crabbe. After I told him what he said he swore me never to repeat it to anyone as he would be in for it. After 45 years I think I can let it go,makes more sense than some of the wild stories going about. Why would anyone want to lay charges on a visiting warship,inspect it maybe but some-one out there knows. Don't want to break any secret acts though so, be careful out there!
