Good find BNM thank you, brought back a few memories from VL and a couple of chockhead faces I knew, that swimming pool was bloody cold too!
Incidentally the 1959 Navy News page has an article about a Skyraider crew being picked up by a russian trawler, pilot Barry Hartwell he was my boss - FDO on the 'Old Grey Ghost' in the mid 60's and something of a character, a gentleman as we used to call 'good hands' from the wardroom..
