About Me

Joined Diana in 1963 in Plymouth. I was a EM1. We then went out to the Far East for almost a year. Guardship to Victorious in the Indian ocean. We went to Singapore and Hong Kong.

Was involved when the Mysore sunk the Voyager. Our Captain was Commander Startin. drove the ship flat out most of the time. He was excellent at breaking away from RAS with a full ahead port thrity manoeuvre. Much broken crockery.

I was in the ships band called the Fabulous Escorts,with Jinxy Hickling, Ginger our bass player, I'll have to dig out some photos to remember our drummer and lead guitarist.

I will up date this profile later.

Married to Sandra for 48 years (met at a Collingwood dance) 2 boys and 3 grandaughters. Like to here from anyone who remembers me
