Standing at the gates


Lantern Swinger
About this time 21 years ago I was stepping off the bus outside the gates of HMS Raleigh to join the Andrew, some memories are as fresh as yesterday. The first night not in new entry cause it was full, I bet that doesn`t happen today. A couple of lads crying one who stayed just for the night then went home. Certainly was a bit of a culture shock, getting in the shit before our first class run ashore and not going, the peace and quiet was eerie. The space shuttle blowing up and finding out about it 2 weeks later. Getting selected for RN colts rugby and going to Collingwood at weekends and being treated like comparative royalty it was another world.
Great memories.
