@janner, I for one found Eagle quite useful for some emergency dentistry at Torbay during the Fleet Review circa 1970.
Re: That 'Warship Eagle' Youtube fillum - I had to chuckle when I saw that the Eagle's skipper ATT was that famous WW2 S/M CO - 'Foxy Roxy' (later FOSM 1969–1972).
After a memorable Mess Dinner (as honoured guest at Blockhouse) he patiently withstood a severe ear-bashing/chest-prodding sesh from my 4'11" SWMBO over a late & particularly disruptive boat's programme change...
(Nothing was ever said afterwards but, on reflection, our cards must have been well-marked - For the next 12 years were 'enjoyed' at various non-preference Faslane appointments. Mmmm... )
Remember back in the day when at each cinema showing the services all alternated annually and had a PR film shown ?
we made a pukka film on the Achilles (1982) - we played the part of (I think) HMS Fife who had received the Gillette Sword of Peace ? for their work in the Dominican Republic after a hurricane decimated the place
Filmed in Antigua at Nelson's Harbour, which then was run down and looked like it had been hit by a hurricane (bit different now)
Constantly took the piss and wound up the film crew - all luvvies living in the wardroom - but good laugh, lots of free beer
Was released with Cannonball Run and we got to go to the premier at Leicester Square, red carpet and all.............and a free bar....................til we drunk it all..................................memories
