am trying to locate any of the band from HMS Ark Royal 1963/65. We did
a tour of the far east and I was wondering what happened to all my old
mates. A list of names is listed but most are nicknames and I can't
recall all of them. I would imagine many are now accompanying arch angel
Gabriel, but hopefully there are still some
who are around today who will remember the tour.
I have also attached a photograph of the bunch of reprobates.
