HMS Kent, States and Windies. in 1974

Written by Sam Smout

My best time in the mob was 2 and a half years on the Kent, mainly for the 7 months States/W.Indies trip. Good mess, good senior rates and officers. Seemed to be busy all the time but can’t remember a bad moment. Maybe the (almost) mutiny in Gib returning from U.S. when 3E Gunners mess were deemed not fit to sail, due to only recently falling out from a major joint excercise all the way back. Good call from the (then) Commander J.J. Black for his understanding.
