my trip on OLNA

Reading about OLNA brought back many great memories of my time on her,the captain let me take my motorbike with me it was kept in the firemans mess which was'et used that trip,and the stand left two great holes in the deck.Did exercise Sea Lance on her and I remember about to start to oil a ship ifired the poker with the line over to the navy ship without the warning and cleared the navy deck of sailors who were waiting to pick up the line ,that was the first and last time I got to fire the line accross to any ship.Great days ,I paid off in Hull (i think) and had to ride my bike all the way back to Glasgow,seeing the look on the customs mans face when he saw my bike was priclesss.Anyone know how to turn the clock back?
