I remember them from the mid 65s. The phot guys on Ark Royal used to flog them on the canteen flat. Those were the days when ships used to do 2 years away from home. Reckon most of the phot ratings were driving new cars when they got back to Guzz

I haven't seen any of these before - probably because I was 2 in '65! Very funny. Pity there was no internet then - you'd have saved a small fortune! Mind you, there would have been no social life either! Why were they photographed and not photocopied? And why were you charged for them? Were the naval phots paying copyright fees?

There were no photocopiers then either. Anyway giving them away free would have deprived the phot branch guys of their new motors

Bought mine from the Phot when embarked troops on the Rusty B in the Far East in the '60s. More that those displayed on this site. Must have been a Carrier thing.

Yep, they were also being done on the The Old Grey Ghost !
I'm sure I have a few somewhere in my Ditty box.
