Only the one Rummers, it was noticeable as it was a different colour to all the others and was quite shiny. For some reason it also made your eyes water!

Good pic Scouse, I did get to go aboard the Ark, when in Malta once with the Vic, a lot of my old joining up class picked the Ark up on their first draft. Amongst the handlers were 'Barney' Pritchard, Trevor 'Bev' Brookes and Dave Buckingham. Good days !!
