Brent Field. He said very little. We often were stuck on the seabed waiting for "Viz" for up to 10 hours at a time. He had tapes of all the Bach Fugues. Like Bach, Toccata and Fugue in D minor. It sounded like a Hammer Soundtrack.

Hi Dave
I might have sailed with you on the Vickers boats, I was AB on the Viscount, Vanguard + the Viking between 77 +78. Old men were Mellors + Edwards.
All the best Jimmy Scougall
