Hi all I'm just starting on this sight as a result of a search for the 77 fire on HMS Ashanti.
I joined up in 72 Raleigh and bought my self out in 79.
Ships I had were Defiance, Brighton, Caledonia, Tiger, Glamorgan (refit) Tartar then onto the Ashanti. Cive street.

Hi Jones the Steam. If you do a search on the site for HMS Ashanti, (from the search forums pull-down menu on the top right of your screen), you will find quite a long thread regarding the accident. Lots of other grey funnel lads on here too. Enjoy the site.
By the way, you must have had an official number around the 130xxx area.
I joined in `71 with 123xxx.

Welcome to Ships Nostalgia where I hope you'll find much of interest!
Are you familiar with a little green engine by the name of Ivor perchance?!
