Any idea when this piccy was taken?
The lad in the centre appears to have a bow wave on his cap - and in 1962 that was a definite no!-no! - and was immediately spiked on the bed post !!
One of the lads I trained with (Pete N) had a perfectly shaped round head and never, that I can recall, had a cap spiked.
I got the pic of "Brick" Wall's excellent site (where I've only just noticed Geoff "Wessex" is also depicted) so it is probably 1967-68, as Brick was there then. The page link is here: http://www.maxwall.co.uk/navy/navphoto.htm
Thanks for the link, it confirms that the Lt Cdr Thorpe mentioned by some of the G***** people was the guy who was the supply officer on Troubridge when I was a Mid.
