Message for Billy: the material in www.RFANostalgia.org is for the enjoyment and education of all so no problem with you using it but we request that you always reference back to RFANostalgia.org (or preferably link to the material that you are using) and include the person's ID who kindly donated the item to us whenever possible as that is what the original 'donors' to RFANostalgia requested when they allowed us to use it.

Thanks.

FAO Rab (the herbs) Thomson...
Hi Rab again, nice to hear you are still keeping up with the past. Interesting you still see Bill Shepheard, he was in DMS(N) Bath when I started my time in HQ in '93 he then became the Marine Service Manager in Rosyth, I think our section closed in '96 as I remember visiting to close down some aspects. I have been pestering Barry recently with questions and have managed to make some comments from the old days. I have promised to send the limited pics I have to Barry when we return home after New Year. We are off in our motorhome at present till 2nd Jan. Scoff came up from Falmouth to the Plymouth Xmas party but sadly we were unable to attend. Alec Redpath a name from the past lives down the road from us in South Brent and is a keen member of the Plymouth branch, I was able to add another name from the past in the gallery in which Alec was named but no one knew Pete Hougham who was a J/E on Retainer then joined Bacchus we me on the UK Singapore run back in the 60-70s.
Have a "

Attn Michael Jamieson

Hello Mike. You must have joined Tidereach after I went to 'Spring. Alec was certainly still there when I departed.
I occasionally see an old friend of yours in our town. Bill Shepherd and his wife Winifred. They have been living here for many years.
Wishing you a Good New Year.

Rab T

I sailed with both Axec and Eric, I joined Retainer in 1964 as an Engineer Cadet, Eric was a Motor Man while when I joined Tidereach late '64 Alec a Steam Man was 1of 4 of 3rd Engineers. We visited Perth in WA, and Alec paraded up and down the RAS deck in his kilt with pipes, never went ashore, but spoke to many locals who had come down to the jetty to see the ship. Sadly I have no photos. However I do remember Alec polishing the h'apnies on watch for international matches in the bar, usually Scotland v England, East African coins were good because they had a hole in the middle and you didn't end up with a high spot in the centre.
