|Good morning to all. Chilly start to the morning but it will warm up and it is a lovely clear sky above. |
Another long weekend down and behind us. I think that is the last for us this year. Mind you, we had a few.
Tuesday and the first thing I see when opening FR are the posts of HMS Eagle. She was one of the ships that I wanted to join, but I got HMS Victorious instead, until 1964.
Saw the Eagle and the Ark Royal doing launches of aircraft in line abreast off Scottish Coast sometime in the 1960’s. Very impressive. I think they were doing a film of the two carriers at the time.
I have met 3 Australians who were at the Falklands, Hugh. They were on exchange and stayed with their ships. When they returned, they were told that they were not at the Falklands by the Ozz Gubbernment....!!!!!!
Nearly gave you a phone call Margaret at 0500 this morning in Ozz. I had the opportunity, but did not have the right phone No. Maybe you were lucky. Must get the phone Nos of you all at some time as my phone book is a mess. So if you feel inclined, please send details by Private message.
OK. Will leave it at that and hope the weather warms up for you all. Brekkie time.
