I was waiting to see if I was mentioned in the Honours List for outstanding contribution to Wine and Spirit consumption before I ventured into the Guestbook, however nothing was forthcoming, perhaps next year if I am still here!
Hope all my old shipmates are keeping well, this is the first Christmas at home for many a long year and I think we shall be returning to Christmas and New year abroad next year, normally I would be enjoying a few rounds of golf in the sun at this time but the weather here has been so,crappy no golf so bored out of my brain for the last two weeks or so.
It has been said that the Guestbook has been pretty barren for the last few months, I have been as guilty as anyone in that respect but I will certainly make an effort to communicate in the coming months, but not in February, we are off to Fuerteventura for February to escape the last knockins of the winter.
Keep in touch fellas!

I think we are all getting old Ray, and with it our memory of our younger days seems to go.
I am a member of local RNA with only a handful of members turning up at meetings, the youngest being 65 but the rest over 75, and a couple over 90, It would be nice to hear what the rest of us old farts are doing or thinking in their latter years.
Hope you all had a good Christmas.

Is this Guestbook stuck in a time-warp, or what?! Even with my dodgy eyesight I can see that it has not moved for ages. No news, anybody? Wife pregnant? Won the Lottery? Feel younger than last year? All three? Happy Xmas!

I'm shure all Cloudobs join me (maye in envy) in wishing you a speedy recovery in your beautiful Islands.

Best wishes John and fam and all Bermudans.

Hello everybody, hope you are all we1l.
This message is specifically for Johnny Wnitfield, didn't want to use email because I think that you may unwittingly have let in a virus to your PC.
Johnny 1 have not emaiied you for a long lime so if you have received an email from me it was a spam, I think the one you returned to me had a link which i did not open and f hope that you did not either, it might be worth checking your security software is up to date because if you did open the link something nasty may have attached itself to your PC.
Check it out and dont email anybody till you are sure your machine is safe.

Back from the dead at last! Me and Steve Howard who were together on the happy Hermes in the late Sixties (along with Colin Brenchley amongst others) went on a camping and cycling trip around Canterbury last week. Also visited Chatham and went on HM Submarine Ocelot and HMS Cavalier, a destroyer which accompanied us to the Far East with Hermes. Brilliant place to visit (Chatham, not the Far East) even though it is one big Museum. With my new all-singing, all-dancing computer, 1 am now unable to send you a couple of photos of me and Steve, but 1 think Steve will do this in a few days time. We haven't changed much, if you discount ageing by 45 years.......
