Did anyone know Buffer Jock Stewart? If you knew him, then you knew him! He was the buffer on HMS Birmingham during first commission in 1978 - 80 and after that on the Liverpool. He was also heavily involved with the Field Gun (real one - not Brickwoods) Very sorry to have to report that I heard today that he died in hospital in London last Wednesday. He should have been at the Trafalgar Night dinner in the home club on Friday and didn't show up. More than that I don't know - maybe more on the Field Gunners site.
