When I was a young thruster me and Mrs Blobby took our hunnymoon in London....I know, feckin sad or what........We visited HMS Belfast and the Old matelots on board there on finding out I was a young bootie and just got married took us down to their mess and got us shedded to celebrate, bless 'em. Will always remember their kindness.
The unit was still going in 1993 when we held our early MVS meetings in the SCC accommodation, obviously when they were adrift. I loved it down there - I gave my first ever seamanship training lecture (as a Communicator!) in the small room off the messdeck, aptly on buoys! The best bit was the bar, of course! Very cosy.
And of course Belfast is famous for having a hammock made for the pet pussy (a pussy hammock)! :lol:
