Colwyn Bay GB Oil and Gas Blake Getting old enough that just about everything features highly! TC the Launderette Manageress, PO Smith you only have one C*** to look after, Weekend sailing trips to Torquay, Port Coolers, the friends i made from BRNC85 and fitting my new best number 5s, looking oh so trim, arriving at my Rigby Club to be told I was too thin to be a prop--oh happy day (day=it didnt last) and Mid Grice... nuff said. With TC and ND on PLX(the return) with a certain Staff officer and having to remember not to give him the slap he deserved (deserves Jocks protestations that he is really a good bloke notwithstanding). realising that DTS was not quite the same as Basic Training and finding out i was indeed back to prop size and needed to borrow a best No5 for parade as mine was consigned to the back of the cupboard, where it remained unworn until Mid Green at the 15 year reunion,it fitted like a glove on said undercover expert effectively offending both of us. Was i ever that small I grumbled..You mean I am now as big as fatty cheesley he wept.. True SL Shag took 5 Year break point. Worked in Oil and Gas sales and Marketing for 10 years in London Became a God botherer, got bored of work, went to Philippines doing good and worthy deeds, went for 1 yr stayed for 6 met my wife, and decided I had better get a job again. returned to UK, Surrey did some work on cleaning in hospitals and pushing wheelchairs in airports for 7 years.got to last reunion--good time had by all Got a call about 4 years back on whether I would like to return to Oil and Gas, Moved to north wales and took up a role to build relationships with NOCs and Ministrys (mostly through Africa) with my fine sense of timing joined just in time to watch the oil price dive down the toilet so I can live under constant joy of potential unemployment. In North wales, 3 kids still Kathleen (13) Christian (9) and William (5) and with much depression passed the half century so know for sure there is definitely more behind than there is ahead! but hey ho part of ahead is the weekend pass to have a boys weekend in Dartmouth...now just have to see how I watch the game!

Tampa US Director of Sales Blake DTS - arriving in Fort Lauderdale during College Week! ...and for some reason the night we spent in a liferaft in the middle of the river! Evening rounds After spending 6 months aboard the Hong Kong patrol ship HMS Starling, left the RN and moved back to HK in 1990. Spent 4 more years there, having a very drunken time, between sports and various other adventures. Managed to get a job with my Physics degree in the Semiconductor Industry, where I have remained ever since. Got married just before leaving Hong Kong; moved to Scotland; 2 kids; divorced; new job based in Tampa, Florida; 3 years later got married (again); 2 more kids; and am still in Florida 19 years later. Work for a European Semiconductor Equipment Company - with most of business in Asia! So I travel frequently, and try to stay fit doing swim/bike/run, and various other fun events when I can. Enjoy sailing (mainly for vacations), and power boating / water sports around the coast and lakes here.
