Hi Scouse
I was on Danae during that commish and remember the grounding and emergency docking very well. I thought it was just me but I felt she was a very unhappy ship and I was glad to get off her in Singers when I qualified for my buttons.
I still have good buddies from ships I served on more than 40 years ago but none from the Danae and very few happy memories of that time.

Never realised that he was the Killick of both those Cabs. Im of to the pub ! for a tot of pussers :crazy: :crying:
Not sure if they were both his but he did lose two, both pilot error though of course the board of enquiry did their best to hang the maintainers.
I liked Charlie, once you got used to his point of view he was a good bloke, especially if you were in trouble ashore :thumright:
