HMS Vernon, in 1973

Written by Eric(pusser)Hills

I’m not quite sure if it was 73 or 74, but I remember being asked for volunteers to man the Southampton Reservists vessel H.M.S.Isis which we took for a weekend jolly down the River Sienne to the French town of Vernon and we ran out of cigarettes as the local tobacconists were on strike,and the Skipper was the only person onboard who had any so he became everybodys best mate.
