H.M.S. DIANA

About Me

I joined the Royal Navy at H.M.S Ganges Nov 1947,after spending 4 years at Watts Naval Training School aDr Banardos institution 

My first ship was H.M.S. Duke  of York, at that time flagship of the home fleet .

I had a rude awakening from the comforts of a Battle wagon as my next draft was to a loch class frigate based in Londonderry N.I.  I Joined Loch Tralaig May 49 as a boy 1stclass & left to go t Vernon as a O.D.Aug 50. I  qualified at Vernon as a U.W.3. and went to Dolphin for Submarine training. From 1951. - 1962 I served in Submarines. In 1962  I left S/M's as  a

P.O.U.W.1. and was in the second class to train as it then was,as a Weapons Mech.

I joined H.M.S.Diana the day after my 33rd birthday. 15th June 1965. I was 'B' turret maintainer and spent a very happy time, we did the Far East Bira patrol etc.

The Captain at that time was commander Beeson. I left Diana April 1967.

My time in the R.N. ended in 1972.
