    Hiya
    Don't waste today worrying about tomorrow.

    A true heart and soul connection won't be broken by distance or time.

    What do you mean wine isn't the answer!!!

    Re: Another newbie.

    Thanks everybody for the welcome. My only other family connections with the Forces are an Uncle who was lost on HMS Acasta in 1940,an Uncle who survived Dunkirk and one who was a DEMS Gunner and one who was in the RAF Pathfinders. I believe that was quite hairy, which was all he would ever say about it.

    Re: Another newbie.

    Now we're talking.

    Uncle on HMS Illustrious, another on HMS Cherybis (sp?), FIL Atlantic convoy escort (Flower Class Corvette, K49, HMS Crocus. Better know as "Compass Rose" in the film, The Cruel Sea) and Dad a DEM's PO Gunner on East Coast and Russian Convoys, PQ16.
    Dad also ran for Pompey Field Gun just after the war.

    Welcome aboard Shipmate.
