    I have a better Idea.
    Get the OWNER of the photos to post them on the IMO gallery.

    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

    Nice Photo

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

    Emers Gemini

    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.
