Egg sarnie and a can of soup days!!
I was refit crew on the Troubridge 63/64 and lived in Hal Far with the Wafooooooooooooooooes!! good times anyone remember?
Fell in love with a South African REM(A) WREN by the name of Rose god she was lovely!! And me a skimmer (at the time!!)

Ronnies Bar, Hal Far .....1958 and my first draft as a lad of 16. It was always full of Jennys. 18 WRNS in the MSO and lots more in the Ops room. Thought I'd gone to heaven but came down to earth quickly on draft to the 7th DS!!!!

I left Hal Far in 1956, having spent many happy hours in Ronnie's.I next went to Malta in 1960 on Bulwark, and on my first run ashore, walking down Kingsway with a mate, I heard my name bellowed from across the road, "Welcome back, I see you not got your F.....g hook yet!"
Nice man Ronnie, ruined many a young man' s liver. I believe his real name was Carmel Zammit, and his home was in Zurrieq.

Both yours and mine Dusty!! Remember winding the wafoooooohs up big time Jan especially Wednesday nights after they'd finished night flying.

There was always one pilot who used to delight in scaring the crap out of you with his low flying as you staggered back along the raod from Ronnies' after a dinner time sessh - would love to meet him again !!

A Hal Far tot, made with iced water - luxury! And the beautiful salad bar in the dining hall - tasty. Speedy, the lunatic bus driver who used to take us back to Hal Far from the Dockyard - could've been the first Maltese F1 driver if they'd found him ! Ah, the good old days. Where's that bottle of SRD gone, dammit !!
