He's not been well for some time, I'll be going down to say my goodbyes.
last saw tank about a decade ago, he knew he had served with me but a bit confused as to where, when, and I had a different name every time we spoke. Parkinson was taking its toll.

Sadly, I have to report the passing of a dear friend/
Al Doughty, ex Naval Aircraft Mechanic and aircrewman passed away in Southampton Hospital after suffering a massive heart attack. Al even managed a tour with the AAC and is mentioned in the book 'Scram' a Junglie perspective of the Falklands conflict in 1982.
Al went on to become a airline pilot and yachtsman after leaving the mob, taking part in the Fastnet Race. Folk around Wemouth may well know Al as he was Director of Dorset Yacht Charters.

Farewell and bon voyage my friend.

Born in Carlisle, Mr Ismay served six years in the Royal Navy, seeing action in the Falklands War on board HMS Minerva and HMS Illustrious.

His final posting in the Navy was in Northern Ireland and that is where he met his future wife Sharon, at a function onboard HMS Caroline.
Sorry to have missed these posts about Adrian Ismay, by 4 years, to be precise :-( , I can't believe they got past me. Izzy was at Mercury at the same time as me, our paths crossed for a short time when we both worked in T Section. You're info is correct, he was from Carlisle, and not Northern Ireland as reported in some places. He wasn't an officer, and he certainly wasn't a Royal. He was a killick bunting, and he was down south on the Illustrious. I can't think why he was reported as being down south on 2 different ships.....the only logical thing would be that the Minerva was probably his first ship, in the late 70s, and the report has blurred the timings. I remember him as a quiet bloke who always had a smile on his face, always willing to help out. He joined the NI Prison Service but at the time of his death FB comms page said that he wasn't working as an actual 'screw'. It said that he'd been assigned to a project that assists the rehabilitation of prisoners due for release. He had a big heart, and he'll be missed. I'm sure he's 'up top' on the Flag Deck now. RIP Izzy.
