Here is one of the fleet from 1985. I know most of the guys there and I met John Mc. recently. Still has the same laugh! a chuckle! And like most of us a bit thin on top and a bit greyer. Looks like Bart Simpson now:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Early 80's pic of LE Aisling taken by the "test pilot", one of the best shots of naval ships in my opinion.

Another use for the Gemini , 1982 in the Med ,see the Coxn wearing pink . This was a beach in Almeria in southern Spain , we took a trip ashore while we where at anchor the day before we where to go alongside , we had a few days on hand due to the Beruit stopover being cancealled because Israel had invaded Southern Lebenon . Just after I took this pic two Spainish cops armed with machine guns , riding on a motorbike and dressed like Franco was still around came by and wanted to know who we where . They had seen us coming in from the ship in the Gemini and thought we might be ilegal imigrants , and they had no sense of humour .

Yes it is Rob and I am sure it is Buicks brother the green jacket might be confusing you thinking its a army driver.
