HMS Vigilant sets sail after refuel and upgrade

Was onboard for Vigilants first patrol back in 1998,still got the polo shirt,what a culture shock it was ,from mechs course before which I was O boats to bombers!
Three and a half years!! How long was she in construction? Someone's a bit slow, or is it so complex now. Genuine question. I bin gone since 1967.
Just wear your pin with pride Barney (and then we can all see your a bomber queen :D)
Sadly I obtained my bomber patrol pin the month after they were issued to the RN. I visited Faslane with cadets as I am now an orificer with the cadets,cant let go of the mob,still living the dream........
