Can you spare £0.99?Raleigh '71 - the rest is a bit of a blur, I remember being bloody hot, then bloody cold, next thing I knew I was in the Fire brigade - still not sure what I was drinking!
I'll bite, Oooooooooooooooooooooh no it isn't ;-PI'd bite, but posting my docs would make me really identifiable. However:
Jul 08 - Raleigh
Feb 09 - Nelson
Cram in a through deck cruiser and a dogwatch writer with a sense of humour rooted in 70's diesel weasels and it might be pretty obvious who I am.
My old man was a diesel weasel - the only *true* submarine we've operated.
SJRM, I left Invince Feb 93 to commence CT course, didn't do an Adriatic trip, 92 was of course Orient 92, great deployment. I was in 6GSO, just above the booties and the you know what!!!I was on INVINCIBLE 92 - 93 for the Adriatic deployment, spent a bit of my time on the bridge, especially when entering harbour!!
6D2 mess (with the WEMs)
[/QUOTE]My naval career very similar Gombear :

1972 back to Dryad for RP2s. 1973 HMS Chawton on fishery patrol.
