Voyage from Hamburg to Rosyth HMS GAVINGTON in 1983
Written by Paddy CampbellShip's crew were getting changed to 'go ashore' as a force 12 was raging outside the harbour walls when we were shocked to hear over the tannoy system the captain announcing that we were to prepare for setting sail to Rosyth. A voyage that I will never forget in my life. A voyage that put the lives of whole crew of HMS Gavington 1982/1983. A voyage I would like to recall with others who went through it. I would like to understand why the Captain took us to sea that day and what were the thoughts of others, including the officers, about his decision.
