London RNR on parade for the 1977 Lord Mayor's Show. I was a member of the Guard. 0630 at the HAC ground, it tried to snow and we were in 1's, no greatcoats, so white fronts and jerseys. Lt Cdr Baker kindly gave the poor shivering matelots a swig from his hip-flask. Greatly appreciated. He joined in the party on HMS President afterwards, too.
I reminded him of this about 10 years later when he appeared with the choir I sang with in a concert. We didn't get to have a drink together that time though. A thorough gent. RIP.
