Saw most of it, interesting, did Royal Yacht guard ship, around the Hebrides.
When one of the lads misses, was struggling with child birth back in buzz the poss said get him home, Hebrides to buzz in under 8 hours, he said it was a bit James Bond like, hit tarmac, car waiting, race to train station, train being held, waiting for him. His trip back to ship was a bit slower.

Had a brilliant DTS on it in Gib once. Great tour round, saw the 'Golden Rivet' in the immaculate engine room and even he cage full of gold leaf for the stripe round the hull. In fact, we were given a small square of gold leaf as a gizzit. Also given a ceramic half bottle of Pussers, which I still have.
