Sealion Crew 1972

#1
For any other ex-Sealion crew out there, here's a crew photo taken alongside in Dolphin after FOSM's divisions in 1972. My thanks to Bill (my ex-Polto) for sending this.


ps : I'm the good looking one here -

Polycell - you know how it is with advancing years - the memory fades! have to be honest and say I can't remember many of the names, but Harry Dixon does ring a bell somewhere in the depths.

Cheers Oppo - an email of the Sticky Songbook would be VERY much appreciated! I fear my copy got left behind in a loft during a house move, along with all my piccies etc.

I served at FOSM Northwood in the mid eighties. Sealion used to be refered to very fondly then as the boat with goatskin ballast tanks and bulkheads that were see through when wet.
One of the old and bold LRO's (CTF 345, shsssssshhhhh) would pop into the New Galaxy bar (yep....the JR's NAAFI bar) and con any sprogs out of a beer for a Sealion dit!
Not you was it Skyvet?

He's far to doggo to have been an LRO, look at the trade badge REM or whatever?

That's you off the "come round" list Janner! ! I was skin then, and I'm still skin now! When the piccy was taken I was a killick greenie (LOEM)

You'd have to be a bunting tosser I guess?

Very nice pictures.Can you remember the battle honours on the board above the nameboard?
I've zoomed in on the piccie, but the only one I can read is North Sea 1940
as one of the bunrun boys has his head obscuring the others!

In 1972 my mother was only 6. I feel so young :/

I hope that I can look back 30 years from now at some pictures of my own though.
