Hi Ian , read your previous and also received your other e-mail. You brought back memories especially of Buster the dog, which we found shot and had to bribe taxi drivers to take it to a vet, as animals were'nt allowed in taxis. I went with Jim Main to purchase the replacement dog and whilst I was paying for it I told Jim to check that it was a dog. Which is why we arrived back at the island with the little b###h which we called girl. I,m afraid Lt. cmr Goodin has died and Fred brading the Gunnery Officer who lived on the island.I remember the bar screen being made out of the cooling fins from the Act 9's or CV28's for theirproper title. There is some very good photographs ofSWB's on Randall Mcdowells web site on Yahoo. Ex-POREL I joined with at Collingwood 1963. Which is where I met Fred Deans who was also at Stonecutters. I remember Jim Cassidy, Topsy Moshi Turner,Jim Swaffield, Tony Quigley who married Fred Bradings daughter, Chris Mumberson who build the speedboat with Roger King for water skiing but did'ny quite buy a powerful enough engine so we went for water drags instead of skiing.I also remember Smiley the barman and Hoe who seemed to do everything else. There will probably be other names that will come back to me ,but age dims the memory....cheers George
