My first and last ship whilst in the RFA. I stood by her build at Hawthorne Leslie in 1963 and sailed on her for 18 months. In 1970 after being made T/A senior leckie to bring Resource back from Malta I reverted back to first leckie to join Tidepool for this trip to Rotterdam. I left the outfit after arriving back to the UK. Also did a spell on her mid 60s when we in the Gulf of Tonkin refuelling the US carrier Coral Sea. This was not spoken about at the time.
