What ship ? I was in The Old Grey Ghost.

First time I'd ever seen a matelot (mobile tri-service patrol) with an smg .. :shock:

(still working on my family tree - but all my ancestors appear to have been jolly jacks)

Should have gotten in with the Crabs - good bars, and good beach if you didn't take notice of the shark nets !!

Had a few good runs down the town though - but I was only 17 and still a baby really.
