Greetings from LREM/POREL John Nixon

Hello to all my friends and colleagues from my time in HMS Mauritius (1973-5).  I initially worked at Bigara as an LREM watchkeeper (Chief of Watch was Spike Hughes and later Steve Chivers) and then transferred to the Comcen as PO of the watch (Engineering). 

I have seen a post from our CPOPTI (Bagsy Baker) so will contact you soon, Bagsy.  I was fortunate to be in the first XI HMS football team with many good friends like Bagsy himself, Pete Latham, Brian Moverly, Brian Welch, Scouse Abbley, Tony Lewis (goalie) and many more.  I also played rugby and swam for HMS so many of my memories are sport-related (I have the medals to prove it too :-)).

My wife was Carol and we had a daughter (Lisa) and two sons, both born in the hospital at HMS (Philip and Christopher).  Our married quarter was the first block on the left with our close friends Tony and Yvonne Lewis on the top floor.

I have several photos so will post them soon but would like to hear from anyone who knew me during that wonderful phase of my career in the Navy.

Best wishes,

John Nixon

There is another HMS Mauritius website - 'The M.V. Mauritius Veterans' - a 'private' site, please contact me for details.
We have many sports photos at the 'private' site.  I'm sure you are in some of them.
Today, 28 June, our other site has 288 members.  the site can only be viewed by members.
I can make you a member.   You will be able to make contact with many old mates.  Scouse Abley for a start.
Who could forget Scouse.   It is easy to upload your photos to the 'private' site yourself.

I was REM1 'Charlie' Chase at HMS Nov 73 to Nov 74.  I worked in Systems, in the Commcen.
Single, I lived on the VMs Patch.
I played in the HMS 2nd XI

Regards
Robert  (Charlie)  Chase

John,

I forgot to tell you.

Steve Chivers is a member of the other HMS site.
I'm sure there must be many others that you remember, and I'm sure that many will remember you.
