HMS Bicester in 1949
Written by John BishopIn the Nore Flotilla. Senior ship in company with the Bleasdale And Cowdry.This was my first ship where I was introduced to Naval termanolgy. I was an Ordinary Telegraphist with one tel named Smith and a Ldg Tel. Whilst on board I passed for Tel. I also experienced having to climb the mast go to the end of the yardarms and rig new W/T aerials. Our main task was going to Shotley to take bays to sea for sea training. A happy ship I recall.
