First of all Martyn, a very warm welcome from Wales, I really hope you enjoy your voyage here with us aboard The S.N. I served on board The Tactician from August 1968 to November 1969, I dont think I served with Ron Baberon Martyn, but definately the name is ringing bells, obviously I must have heard his name mentioned by some of the good few who served with me on The Tactician, I have certainly heard the name in conversation, thing is now to think of the chaps I worked with and try to put names to faces and give you some leads ( Hopefully ) Thing is Martyn, the amount of medication I am on has made my memory like a sieve full of Swiss cheese. The only names I can make out in my book are Capt Skelly and an E.R.Tyson, but I will try and come up with some more and pass them on to you, The very best of Luck Martyn in your quest.
Harvey.
