As a cadet in Triumph, the best bit with movies in the lift well was people falling down the holes at the side where the big greasy chains live.

So,where is the flight deck then?
Sorry .talking about the heavy repair ship,ex aircraft carrier.
Youre probably far too young to remember when we had a real navy.
remember the Truimph in Singers 66 always stuck alongside/ The Victorious crew always sang to them in the Terror/ club " theirs a buzz going round the harbour that the Triumphs going to sea " :angel7: :thumright:

She did deploy occasionally - as early 1968 to Sydney & Auckland. Looked achingly unseamanlike with all those shacks on the flight deck.

We had the honour of bringing her back from Mombasa in 72 prior to scraping.
She didnt fair very well in heavy seas and there was a danger of her leaking due to her being out east for so long.

When in Rio a baby chef was shot dead so we had to leave early curtailing a very good run ashore up until then.
