A few guys asked me for info on a number of subjects, so here are the answers:

My HMS Danae (1974-76) website link is: http://www.freewebs.com/danaef47/

The ISBN number of 'Jackspeak' is 0 9514305 0 5. The full title of the book is 'Jackspeak, the Pusser's Rum Guide to Royal Navy Slanguage' by Rick Jolly and Tugg. Rick Jolly was the Commanding Officer of Ajax Bay Field Hospital during the Falklands War, and Tugg is the well-known cartoonist of 'Navy News' fame. The copy I have was published in 1988, so if you have any difficulty purchasing a copy from bookshops you should contact Palamanando Publishing, PO Box 42, Torpoint, Cornwall PL11 2YR. Guaranteed a laugh a page.

The ISBN number of 'Don't Cry For Me Sergeant Major' is 0 7088 2390 4. It was wuatten by two TV and newspaper reporters from the viewpoint of the Lower Deck. It is hilarious in parts and well worth a read (if you can find a copy). Published in 1983 by Futura Publications, Macdonald & Co (Publishers) Ltd, Maxwell House, 74 Worship Street, London EC2A 2EN.

RAY: A great first HMS Danae Reunion. Your hard work is much appreciated. Looking forward to the next bigger(?) one, hopefully at Chesterfield.

HMS Danae, Jan 1974 to Jan 1976
