Nutty said:Below is a picture of the twin 4" gun crew on Loch Killisport in action. Note the shell casing being discharged from the starboard or nearer breech.
The man with his back to us I believe was the POGI. The chap on the right holding a shell was "George Humble" a Boom Defence Technician(2) BT2. The fair haired guy furthest away is "Doc Halliday" a TAS(W) who was also employed on the squid deck from where this pic was taken. I cannot remember the other names. All circa 1963
When the Mermaid was converted in 73/74 they fitted her with a twin 4'' from the mothball fleet...turned out to be the most accurate gun in the fleet...pissed all over the 4.5's .
