All profiles will be checked before they go live which will mean that there may be a short delay...go to the NAAFI then check back later!

Career highlights: last Cdr E and then SNO, HMS ILLUSTRIOUS; Fleet MEO. Adventurous highlights: sailing round Cape Horn; leading RN exped to Antarctic and South Georgia. Family highlights: wife and 2 sons (one now a SLt and one at university), living on the edge of the Marlborough Downs. Never been to a reunion - Holdover in Sep 85 then Term 1 Jan 86, so fell through the gap, unless there was another reason that I haven't been invited before!

Midlothian GB HR Consultant Blake Division (Ho) Looking back now, they are all pretty good. Hiding behind a hedge on a squad run and dropping in at the back unseen (With Mid Cheesley I believe) gave one a sense of bucking the system and winning a small victory - for once. PLX with a certain well loved Blake Division Staff Officer leading from the land rover. Did my eight years as required, most of it spent doing every job there was on Hunt Class MCMV\\\\\\\'s. In the illustrious company of such luminaries as Mids Bence, Ince, Davis and Welch. Based in Rosyth most of my time and ended up staying in Edinburgh on completion. Working in the charity sector for the last 20 years and still in touch with many of the Blake Old Boys and associated hangers on from other Divisions. Married to Linda, 2 girls at university. Upholding the proud Blake traditions and values of old! A change of direction, now working for myself and promoting a charity that provides housing advice to veterans and those leaving the armed forces so back dealing with people in uniform again. Have been working for myself and running my own business for over 5 years now and despite a crash in the business during the pandemic, still enjoying it. A particular highlight since the last reunion was travelling to NZ for the wedding of A/Sub/Lt Nelson. Pictured here with the happy couple and with fellow 85 travellers Mid Grice, Ince & Powell. Great trip.

GB Enterprise Architrect Blake The view from my cabin out to the Dart estuary and seeing Invincible just before our DTS adventure. Sickbay with infected blisters after PLX! Those boots!! After a short but memorable period at Dartmouth and on DTS I decided life on the ocean waves wasn't for me. Spent the next 20 years in IT working for Barclays (where I met my wife Alison). Then spent the next 10 or so IT contracting in the social housing sector. I have three lovely daughters all going slightly mad living at home during lockdown. Lost touch with everyone I knew at BRNC so finding this website was just amazing. So many old names I now remember and some great pics people have posted. Was looking forward to attending my first reunion in September but going to have to wait until 2021 now.

Redditch GB Enterprise Architect Blake Getting back from PLX to find my cabin mates had a hot bath run and a cheese cheese tostie waiting. Bliss! Getting to Sandquay with minutes to spare and realising that I had forgotten something - how many steps were there? Joined the IT industry working for some of the biggest companies out there. Currently lead Architect for a global cloud offering. I did my BSc in Geology I would have studied at Bangor if the Holdover offer had not come through. When not working usually found arguing with my youngest son or off in woodland flinging arrows at some target or other. What reunion?
