Anyone else around here ex-Ganges?

I joined as a J(Mech E), 1957, but passed into tiffy country, Fisguard and Condor. Ended up an AA1 in the FAA. Left 1969.

Yep - 11 Recruitment on 11 Feb 58 as a JNAM(AE). Made Chief Air Fitter before going to BRNC and subsequently left RN in 1994 as Lieutenant Commander. I trust that you are a member of the HMS GANGES Association?

I was briefly... but sitting around in dinners and bars with a collar and tie on is not my thing now.

.... and they kept picking me up for a haircut!

Aye, Joined in 1965, changed branches to AH 10 months later, got fed up of climbing masts and dhobying in the mortuary? Did you know Ron Leach?

Hig, you are the only one old enough to have gone to Bramcote.
+Gawd! Now I know I'm old! I went to Bramcote before Hig!
I think I'll go and lay down in a dark room for a month or two.
