Cheers, that's when I left it (Guzz), bleddy MEO became SNO kept everyone to the absolute last day. As a Guzz rate i wanted to make sure there was no chance of me being drafted back there again. :D I thought it was a bit before that tho.

He is my husband and worked on the 909's was also one of the rapid roping gang - had some publicity photo's taken with two other lads - rather fetching in the tropic rig I have to say :)

Ah a pinky obviously, I must definitely know him. There was a CWEM(R) called Steve but i don't think he was there til the end and went to Northwood anyway. POWEM on 909? sonar, did we have sonar? So long ago. Maybe I'm getting Alzheimers, i remember the towed array man and 184 man on Arethusa! Fearless didn't have sonar, that was it. I'm rambling now, missus is ready and taxi is on its way.

He picked up his PO's on the way back from the gulf he was in 3 November mess and was sad to leave - ah bless!
Brum, the mob or both? First year or so on the Brum was ok but imho it went down hill massively after Dinger Bell departed. It had a pretty good crew but was generally arse as a vessel. 42's grubby, no space and a crap programme. 909's I think I know who your old man is but can't remember his name. The chief was called Charlie(?) skinny guy with a set. There was a welsh PO, that'll be Taff and fwd there was a PO tiff called Sully... The WEO was a top bloke too. He became WE drafty and seemed to piss off just about all the charge chiefs with their appointments. :D Most of them wouldn't believe me when I said he was a great guy to work for!
