Cut my teeth on Admiralty Three Drums....though Y 100's I preferred mainly because no more air locks and pressurised Blr Rm's. Nearest I got to gas propulsion was a County Class, best forgotten! Finished my time on a Leander, which I enjoyed. Happy days indeed!

Had air locks on the Forth that went through 2 decks , in an age before shredders sparkers would come down to burn confidential gash , made sure they phoned us up beforehand to ensure they did not try to open both doors at once !.

I worked on the Sultan Super Sentinel for a couple of months after Mechs course, best time I ever had at Sultan, especially when we took it out on the road, holding up all the traffic :)
