    Is the prison still active above the football field?

    If I recall correctly, it appeared that wives and girlfriends were regular visitors. Very regular!

    • The prison was still active and as we were based there were members of the police mess,resulted in more than one night escorted back to ship while drunk in charge of one and once two mopeds,difficult to drive two mopeds at once but all i can remember is useing two bits of lashing and an engineer to hold the aft end of the second bike . also not sure how many people we had on the now four wheel moped.


      sailors when drunk are protected by a higher power we dont care which one
      Also most have a beer powered force field.


      These are the wise words of an old bosun many years ago .

            Owen Murphy and Ciaran Monks being the other two Leading Seamen, both being divers. Both very good guys to work with. Shared a cabin with Owen, His immortal words of advice being...'don't puke in the sink...most things I'll forgive but not that!'

            Once noted for riding a motorcycle naked through kinsale, by his own admission

                • I see for that fishing vessel crew that the months at sea had paid off
                  What a bountiful catch

                  and on top of that a visit from POD & Lyodie

                  Does life get any better?
                  What do you mean abandon ship
                  Are they taking requests?

                          L.E. Eithne 1st trip to Lorient
                          We are lying on parka jackets , it was freezing
                          Remember going into one bar and the owner though we were german
                          when one of the lads asked him why he said "you all have the german flag on your jackets"
                          Parka jackets & desert boots = off duty uniform
