Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

  1. Thanks, Scouse. Fascinating stuff. Brings a shiver to the spine of someone who read Lion and Victor and built Airfix kits of German A/C as a lad. :wink:

    I remember him being in the news when he was doing rubber-deck trials involving wheels-up landings in a Vampire on board HMS (?)Warrior. The problem of how to jack the a/c up and move it out of the way seemed not to have been anticipated! In modern times as it were I've seen him on TV on a few occasions being interviewed, always very dry and very modest.
