Peter Sambourne and Dreadnought

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Nutty and Janner, as you seem to be the fountains of knowledge on all things under the water, help please.

    As a junior seaman on the Forth, 1st SMS, Malta 57-59, I seem to remember that Peter Sambourne left the Sanguine for UK. As far as I can remember he went to the Dreadnought at Barrow as skipper.

    Can you confirm?

  2. checked my Navy list Spring edition 1962

    Commander B.F.P. Sambourne was Skipper of Dreadnought seniority
    28th July 1960 .

    Hope it helps--have the Jimmy and Engineers names aswell if you want them.

    I caught up with Dreadnought in '65 /66 Faslane !

    Before my time Onions didn't join until 1960, Nutty is even more of an OD I think he started in 1961 at the RN's playschool
  4. Peter Sambourne was on loan to USS Skipjack for experience in 1959. He came aboard Tabard (Lt Cdr Merewether) at Gibraltar when Tabard was operating with Skipjack.
