Written by TERRY CROSSLEY

HMS Dido Portland - BLOOD TROPHY I was the clubswinger and we had a inter-department relay race around the helicopter base to launch The Blood Trophy which was a toilet seat painted gun barrel black with turks heads and the ships crest at the top the Captain presented it to the winning seaman mess . The wardroom won it in Singapore at rugby.The last I heard of the trophy was that it was displayed in a pub in Chatham .
