I was at Whale Island in 93/94 before it was commissioned back to HMS Excellent. Then it was just known as HMS Nelson Annex (WI). It was pretty quiet then, hardly any Ships Co and we had to share accomodation in the top floor of A block with the NAAFI birds. Ground floor was booties who frequently used to try and break in after a night out on the lash. Must admit not one of my favourite drafts, used to worry for my personal safety!! Escpecially as one of the duties was in the male accom block, used to have to sleep in a cabin next to the accom block office and again had to barricade myself in!!
