F4K. Ark Royal with Planeguard

Met only yesterday with the man who was about to launch an F4K from his hole on the flight deck, then a Lt Eng. went on to become a Cdr E last ship he was on was Battleaxe. Small world.

It's a Riga Class GP escort.
At some point I seem to recall a Ruski,asking if we wanted planeguard , skipper said yes, so up they trundled.
Not sure if it was gen though, but a good story.

Another time a spy "trawler" got too close, a chopper was sent over just as they hung out dhobiing to dry on the upper deck & blew most of it away.
