Hello Dom,
I was down there in 1958 on R.F.A. Tiderange and the Fort Beauharnois, was delivering stores to the people involved in the tests, she had like a general cargo, we were delivering aviation spirit for the bomber, we were there 6 weeks, and got relieved by the old Wave Ruler, was like a summer holiday,
