Its amazing some of the names you remember clearly. Having had numerous visits to Chalna between 1957 and 61 I clearly remember the names of most of the pilots. I believe they were all ex U Boat commanders. Names were Lieb, Knigge, Agate and Marfels. They all enjoyed Tennents.

Yes, I remember Lieb and Knigge very well, in fact they were present at my twentyfirst birthday p--s-up soon after Chalna anchorage was opened. I remember it very very well!!
