    Default Anniversary

    Please will all fellow sailors join me in the wardroom for a celebratory tipple of choice.
    50 years ago today I took the Queens shilling, or in my case a small pocket bible, and began a career in the Royal Corps of Signals.
    Became my life until retirement on 1 Dec 1996.
    If I had the choice/chance, would do it all again.
    Met a lot of nice people and was lucky enough to travel to Cyprus, Italy, West Germany as it was then, Shetland and a couple of other Uk environs.
    So sally up to the bar the bell is rung and pass the port

    As I intimated elsewhere sir, I will be honoured to join such a stalwart defender of the wooden walls of old England Captain Duff. To honour your good self even further I will forego my usual tipple and join you in a glass of Port if I may.

    Your obdt servant Wm Bligh.
    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.
