Your story brought a wee tear or two to my old eyes as well Mark!
I just had to stiffen my upper lip with a weeeee dram o the golden nectar!
(Wish you could have filmed that back then😉)
All the best to you and your Leading Hand/Machinist, Doug😎
BTW: Hearty congrats on your promotion Captain Marky👍
Time for you to take over as CO North Western Squadron on the Night Watch😊
Capt. Nerys, CO South West & Bristol Channel Squadron can give you some tips I'm sure.
