Just by way of introducing myself.

Spent 25 years in Royal Navy, 1957-82. Ten ships in that time, 3 WWII Destroyers, modern Destroyer (GMD), 3 Aircraft Carriers (2 Fixed wing and 1 rotary wing Commando) and 3 modern(ish) Frigates. Marine Engineering Department finishing as a Chief Stoker.
Now retired, I fill in time by building 1:72 scale RC model of ships that I have served in (and others I didn't).(Thumb)
Golf also takes up a lot of my time as did art and cartooning.

More later.(Wave)

Welcome aboard from upper East Yorkshire.
You'll find plenty of Grey Funnel lads in the crew as well as modellers. You may even stumble across the odd golfer and quite a few artists.
Have an enjoyable voyage.
