The future of Gibraltar

Do any of you silly old farts remember the euphemistically named RN Sports and Social Club? As I recall, it was just along from Rooke on a patch of land and was the upper of two PortaCabins.

A very cheap drinking den is what it was, run and staffed by I think PTIs.
 
Gib, memories - first veiwing of a miniskirt after 18 months far east, landrover nearly hit a light pole in the main st, run ashore with our new boss (FDO) and being 'asked' to leave the casino after which one of the guys got rolled going through the dockyard. Another time anchored off and the liberty boat being sent around again and again because the OOD didn't like the choir we had onboard and then it ran out of diesel. Plus several hazy days..

Had my leaving do there in 88. Was right by the sea. When I went back in 93 it was a couple of hundred yards inland due to reclamation. The new one was at Cormorant. Cheap beer though!
