HMS Devonshire, random memories db tanky in 1977
Written by Billy Beck
Gibraltar 4 runs ashore was it 50 pubs ?
the mucky Duck portsmouth then joanna’s southsea with who?
West Palm Beach Ark Royal
san wan Porto rico
all the good stuff
being in dry dock for ages then getting out and some idiot breaks the gearbox !
and we go back in
crawling in between boilers gas turbine engines
db tanky in the north sea gale force spewing
deck plate scrubbing boiler room for ever
getting sent down a hatch in a fearnot suit and ba with over heating seacat missiles to see why ? (we were in caribbean)
countless others sorry boys i forgot
