06/15/2013 - 23:58 I was on board for just 2 or3 weeks in nov/dec 1970 before starting my training after induction at Plymouth. I was alongside a lad even bigger than me and another blond lad named ( I think!) Mick Dunn. He was a Londoner and supported Chelsea F C. We started training together at Plymouth with Bill Curry in charge. Also I remember Commander Battrick as a lecturer there. his son Michael is on the list here and was on Aulica in my short spell.
