  5. ...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.
  6. About 8 1/2 Years, in the seventies Carriers were disappearing fast and i was a WAFU.
  7. 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

    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
