Looking for an old friend


I'm looking for an old mate who was on the diesel sub HMS Olympus 1980-84 I can't remember his surname but anyone who served with him will remember him, first name john, 6ft2 used to ride a lambretta with chrome side panels and had a girlfriend who was 4ft8, I know you couldn't make this up if you tried, his home town was Hayes in Middlesex and he used to attend regular scooter rallies.
If this description rings a bell with any of you then please let me know.

I did a copy & paste of your post on F/B Diesel Boats UK and two people came up with the name John Cox. No-one claimed to know his whereabouts at present. Hope this helps.

That's him, I lost contact when he was posted and at the same time my battalion went to the fi as resident infantry battalion in 84
