Margaretta Thank you and yes I am very proud of him.
Unfortunately about 18 months ago he was being lowered onto the deck of a ship in the North Sea when the ship came up to meet him and he was smashed against the side and shattered his wrist and forearm, which has ended his Navel career. I was proud when he first donned the uniform and I am as proud of him today. I think picture has his name on it. So I will frame it for him.

Really sorry to read that Grampy but a young man who undertakes a job as depicted is bound to succeed in whatever he does: grit and determination.:)

Thank you for those kind words. And you are right, not long afterwards he was head hunted for a air crewman with a civilian helicopter company. Although the doesn’t go down at the end of the line anymore, thank heaven.
