HMS Palliser, in 1959

Written by Robert Packer

As a junior seaman just fresh from HMS St Vincent and HMS EXCELLENT .in 59.I joined Palliser my first sea going ship,As a 16 year old ,I was in for a new education on Iceland patrols during the cod wars. They lasted four to six weeks .I was sea sick for two or three days,I wondered what I had let myself in for,but soon I got my sea legs , and life on Frigate started to take shape a life on the ocean wave .I would not have missed it.Happy days.
