...Nearly all shore drafts - I think I did more time at sea, and I was only a weekend warrior. :thumright:

You spent alot of time at Fulmar mate. My old man was on Scimitars at the same time as you.

Aye true enough Hig

My Dad was based at Prestwick in 1978 and had to practically demand a sea draft. He eventually got Fort Grange and only for a year. After that he had shore jobs 'till he left in '83

Think you need to re title this thread higs, its all FOO's

But just to open it out a bit

1979 - Raleigh
1979 - Sultan
1980 - Collingwood and Out

Then

1988 - Raleigh
1988 - FONAC
1989-90 Neptune
1990-91 HMS BATTLEAXE
1991-92 HMS GLASGOW
1992-95 Neptune

Only the basic dates as SCs all packed away, but in my 1st stint as Faslane i was in the UPO then off to Comclyde reg when i finished my Part IV, moved over to NTD Reg as a favour to Drafty in exchange for a swift sea draft, - which they came up with (Shock Horror, draft kept a promise, although i got a Guzz based ship rather than the Rosyth one I wanted), Jumped ship when the Wrens joined the Battleaxe (volunteered, but do not tell anyone) and was given the Draft I really wanted, a 42 out of Rosyth and then back to sunny old faslane to spend the remainder of my time in the cash office
