Cunningham Soapy Watson who taught me all I know Running. I'm more of an explosive sprinter Commanded most classes of warship, enjoyed excellent relationships with all COs, Sqn Cdrs and Line Managers. Keeping fit and trim. (And foolishly allowing Mid Anderson editorial privileges on my profile page)

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!

Ottawa CA Contract Consultancy - Maritime and Infrastructure Security Blake Grad Tech Burning my balding patch on DTS and then having to wear a beret at morning muster. V painful! Having treated BRNC as a school ground, my next few years where a little disjointed until I eventually became a Mine Clearance Diving Officer in 91. Two statutory MCD sea jobs bouncing around in little boats were followed by a string of fun jobs that included 4 mths in Hong Kong during the drawdown, Boss of FDU2, Experimental Diving ProjO at DCIEM Toronto, two years purgatory back in the Portsmouth HQ as punishment for so much fun, and then 3 years on loan service running the Omani Navy's diving team. Leaving the RN and emigrating to Canada Aug 08, I took 7 months off (3 skiing in Whistler) but the 2008 economic downturn foiled my new career ambitions, so I ended up back in RN uniform on a 6 month FTRS contract in the Portsmouth HQ in March 09. The Career Managers then tempted me with a 2 year FTRS contract back in Canada (Ottawa) as probably the only Reservist on an overseas exchange appointment. Completing my FTRS contract in Ottawa in Oct 11, still unsure what to do, I then put on an RCN uniform. But I remained stuck behind an Ottawa HQ desk for another 2½ years and decided the next options were even less fun, so I ditched the RCN in Aug 14. Since then I have been working on an occasional subcontracting basis. My long term view is that work is severely overrated, so I have bought a piece of land overlooking a lake in the untamed interior of BC, and next year intend to build a large cedar log house and live the laid-back BC dream in semi-retirement.

Newmarket GB MD Godolphin and Darley Cunningham The good friends I made there and still have. Charlies. Surely a breach of my human rights? Left the RN in 07 with many good memories of T42s at sea and fun as a naval barrister in courts martial and the odd hot spot around the globe. Last 8 years at Godolphin and Darley in various roles (Dubai and Newmarket). Thoroughbred racing and breeding. Married to Emma with 2 children - Duncan and Eleanor. Watching a lot of races and going grey.
We are to the present OUTs as the 1955 entry was to us....
