My First ship

It’s the one at the bottom on the Port (Left) side of  HMS Hermes in the Indian Ocean back in 1967. The good ship RFA Retainer (Royal Fleet Auxiliary). The ship on the other side of Hermes is RFA Tidereach.


Retainer was replenishing the Hermes with ammunition, whilst Tidereach was topping her up with fuel. Incidentally Tidereach was my second ship.



Two guys, one older and one young, are pushing their carts around B&Q when they collide.
The older man says to the young guy, 'Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I was going.'
The young guy says, 'That's OK. It's a coincidence. I'm looking for my  wife,too. I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate.'
The older man says, 'Well, maybe we can help each other. What does your wife look like?'
The young guy says, 'Well, she is 24 years old, tall, with blonde hair, big blue eyes, long legs, big boobs, and she's wearing tight white shorts, a halter top and no bra.. 'What does your wife look like?'
'Doesn't matter', the old bloke says, 'let's just look for yours.

Sceptical science


If you, like me believe that Climate change is natural or  even if you don’t. You might like to have a read over at this site. Greenworld Trust.

It will give you a vast amount of facts from a warmist converted to sceptic.
