HMS Fearless- Gunnery Officer

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by onions, Feb 15, 2012.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Help required. Does anyone know who was the Gunnery Officer on Fearless circa 1970-1972? My neighbour, who is ex Army, has a tale to tell about when his Regiment took their tanks onboard, Guns features in it.
     
  2. I have asked FEARLESS's Boatswain at the time and he remembers two Gunnery Officers (with a bit of help from the Commissioning Book): a Lt (SD)(G) William Eric BALL and a Lt E G DENNIS (now deceased).
     
  3. Thanks for the info NG.
     
  4. Now you've baited the trap, can we hear this tale? Does it involve a negligent discharge that the army somehow kept quiet? (both figuratively and litterally)
