Comacchio Group in 1979

Written by Gordon Gillies

Birthed in HMS Neptune after a morning briefing we were divided into two groups, smokers and non smokers. Smokers stayed in Neptune non smokers off to Coulport. Happy days if you were a smoker, the novelty of Coulport soon wore off, with midgies in summer and cold wind and rain (most days) that would rival Elvagee on a bad day, from end of Sept. right through to the following May. Numbers were boosted,sections were formed and we rotated between both locations.
