Hi,
I'm Taff Slight I Joined HMS on my 21st birthday 1967
Most of my time was spent at Tombeau watchkeeping.
Bill Bailey was killick of the watch.I started my diving career
and was an active member of the M.U.G Mike baldwin was the boss.
I recall very well Ted Dexter fine crayfish catch which just fitted in
one of the baths in the VM's block.Would love to talk to him again.
One of my oppo's was Big Alan Smith who has unfortunately died.
I too was one of the last 18 monthers,and had my flight cancelled
at the last minute for a medivac,and I remember complaining to the Joss,that not only people were flying home that had come out after
me,but I'd done the leap year too,He had a sense of humour failure.
I now live on a narrowboat with my wife Irene,we're currently on the Grand Union canal at Aylesbury.
Love to hear from anyone.
Taff Smiley
