I think he had the very exciting Sea King hydraulics fire and ditching off the coast near Colltishall?

Just found out that the Type 23 Frigate HMS Montrose is berthed in Montrose this weekend and is open to pre-booked visitors 1000-1530. I thought it would be good to reaquaint myself with the Wildcat helicopter but all visitor slots are taken :(( . HMS Montrose has been in the Gulf for four years and will be scrapped or sold this Spring. Because of her extended time in the Gulf she has a Port and Starboard crew - Port commanded by a male Commander, and Starboard by a female Commander.

You are not just some mere visitor C16, surely you can swing a visit through the old boy's (and girl's) network? ;)))

Approach from oceanside on a lilo looking like a migrant - they'll take you on board and probably feed you too ;)))

They probably would because the Royal Navy abides by the rules of the sea, doesn't ignore International law, and inculcates a modicum of morality in its officers.
