    I remember an S/A, small in stature, thickest Cork accent you ever heard, named after a furry animal with big teeth that cut's down trees. Once described DOD jacks roll as Rambo roll said it was "Rough tough and took no s*~te! He had a point!

    Great to hear Mick M is doing well, bumped into him many years ago when he was working for FAS, what’s he doing these days?

    He was in training division when I was on Spike, one of the scariest people a red arse recruit could ever meet. Was at sea with him on Aisling, turned out he was great bloke after all and very very funny. I remember one night while Ned B was asleep the bould Mick filled his boots with tomato sauce. I think we were in Rathmullen at the time, the next morning they probably heard Ned Screaming on the base, and Mick Laughing too.

    There's a few more heads in there I think I recognize
    Cha the Tel was your brother a tel also ? were you on Emer with Billy Biscuits ?
    Sorry to hear about the hair Moggy , still got mine .
    Are you still diving Damo I took up diving after the navy and am still active.

    .
    Moggy lost his hair gracefully not like some who let little sea creatures eat away at them and then had to destroy everything in his bunk space in case any were crawling around(hope she was worth it).

    Poor Bernard O'S was never the same after the climb up Sir John Rogersons quay or the Arran Island.I never seen lads to sober up as quick as I did that night .
