What about "Warship", it was watching this tv series that made me join up. :?
Oh yes, HMS Hero (in reality the Phoebe) - this too reinforced my interest in the RN.
Got rescued by "Hero" when a fishing banyan came to an abrupt halt after the motor cutter went sick. After letting off a couple of distress flares and getting no response from two GMDs (remember them!) Hero/ Phoebe headed in our direction and sent an LMEM across to help us get the engine started. Having to keep a filming schedule the ship sailed off. We returned to the Eskimo and the LMEM got an unexpected make n mend.
What about "Sailor" and the last deployment of the previous Ark - was it 1976?
Last deployment started in Jan 1978 , best ship I ever served on , :lol:
Just found the "Last Commission Book" (as signed by Ted Anson) - which branch were you - I'll see If I can find your pic.
