Just picked this up and have read a small section, but, being past my sell by date at 0137, will read it through tomorrow. From what I've seen so far it will be a cracking read, and I'm looking forward to it.
Although I have yet to finish reading the site I must say right away surely such a brilliant presentation of RN life should be put into book form . It qualifys for everything , introduction to the navy , history book including an excellent coverage of HMS Ganges , I could go on but PLEASE have this published that is if you haven't already started the press rolling . VG Sup with no hesitation BZ

Did my watch-keeping ticket on the Woo-Ha when she was based ' up North ' prior to her Malta stint . Only difference in the Kye recipe we brewed it with a steam drain .
I've just finnished reading this and I must say BZ! The only down side is that it make's me lament the fact that I was born 25 years too late!And although I served in my own small way in a Navy which is in my view still the mutts nuts. Was also still a million miles away from what it should have - and should still be. You were a very lucky man.
I shall also support Hobbits suggestion and say get it printed!
My suggestion to go to print was not as a commercial proposition but purely because of the books value to the RN , history and the public . In regard to money well the RNA and other pussers groups could well benefit from the proceeds for charity . One of my pet projects , if I had the cash , would be to move the ' Mast ' and ' Main Gates ' from HMS Ganges to HMS Raleigh where they would be safe and well maintained and also available to new recruits .
Anyway , back to the book, first editions , leather bound , to your family , signed by the author of course . Then the RNA and ex Ganges get first bite of the good copies . Rave over but I repeat , it is a terrific record of so much of what 'was ' Pusser it is really priceless ' Hope you don't mind this additional comment .
