HMS Aeneas, in 1968
Playing Rugby in Cape Town against the
Cape town police and been carried over the line by a big cape town copper before he put the ball down for a try.
We got the last laugh though because I kicked 3 goals and we won the game
Playing football in Helsinki, I had to pick a team from 3 subs moored in Helsinki to play against HMS DEVONSHIRE. It was on its way to Russia to play against the Russian Navy with 5 full navy players on board.
We put up a good show and managed a draw
Going ashore with Ginge Workman, Patsy O,neill and Colin Ashmore on a regular basis along with Paddy Fanning who we always seemed to have to carry back on board.
