    Good story, but should we not be in another thread -Were you in the NS back in........' I know, I'm guilty of it myself! Can the MOD shift all the posts and keep post 1 and 6 here,so as to keep this one as a notice board?

    Yeah George seemed to be one of those guys who was around forever.

    Tow from the above intake, Connie and Ger Pentony were in my recruit intake

    Bets of luck to them all in what ever paths they now chose.

    Surprised to see Writers go. You would nearly have to drag them out kicking and screaming from their cushy, non sea going jobs.

    Yes , normally not a sea going post.(apart from foreign trips) they would run over you trying to get up the gangway.
    At sea in my time SBA(medic) would help Cox`n do that type of work.
    Eithne was first ship if i am correct to have writer on board,don`t know if they were happy with that .
    What do you mean abandon ship
    Are they taking requests?
