There it was - a scorching hot afternoon, staying in out of the sun with only the P.C. & a cold beer for company ! Found this site & nostalgia kicked in ! Twenty seven years out of the "mob" & how time flies. Quick intro:- Joined at Raleigh 65 - left from Cochrane 1980 - Oh ! - the bit in the middle - Sultan, London, Sultan, Manxman, Ark Royal, Portland, Sultan, Glamorgan, Neptune. There it was fifteen years just like that! After life - with a firm of consulting enginers for ten years, then fifteen with a global insurer as staff engineer. After-afterlife - took redundancy at age fifty five, now three years ago - retired to Greece - so far living happily ever after, doing mostly what I did in service - avoiding work as much as possible, drinking the same way & playing with boats. Glad to be aboard.
