I can remember a " call round" to Relentless in 66 at Guzz. Only problem was I had to remain in the PO's Mess pantry as Scouse Hutchings had made PO and I was still a killick. Good run though!!! Best wishes for your association. Barney

Leading Writer - Joined RELENTLESS July, 1951 at Portsmouth during conversion to Type 15 (first prototype.
First of class was ROCKET. After a spell at Portland joined 3rd Training Squadron, Londonderry January, 1952 as Leader alongside CRISPIN, CREOLE, LOCH TRALAIG, LOCH VERITY, TENANCIOUS and subsequently ROCKET. Became PO Writer to Captain (D) - Captain Michael Le Fanu
(38 years of age - one of the youngest Captains ever in the RN) who subsequently became First Sea Lord, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Michael Le Fanu. Some may recall he was CO of Ganges some time later (mid fifties) and responsible for sorting it out throwing out the barbaric regime that existed existed.Interestingly we were known as the Red Hand Squadron and all had the protestant Red Hand painted on our funnels. Left 'Derry in March, 1953
CO of RELENTLESS at time was Commander L.E. Herrick (A New Zealander) known on board as "Hard Over Herrick" for his perchant of hard over routines during the crew's lunch, levelling up for wardroom lunch. Those were the days and this was in the north sea!!!
Will search the albums - have pictures know a few names - I did pay them after all.
Regards to everyone
