Come to think of it why go to Gib? We've got nothing there, HMS Rooke closed down a couple of years ago. The Dockyard as was is now closed (what's left is being used for civilian purposes) Apart from a few old has been matelots and a small army base (which covers everybody) that's Gib - the might Base. Even the London Bar is closed! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Aye, when last in Gib for the reunion I went up there to take a look and maybe have a beer or to for old time sakes - it was shut and looked like it had been for a fair while, times change. Mind you Gib it self has changed a lot - so too has Singapore, mate of mine has just done some six months posting there and his description of the place is awful! I think we saw the place at the right time. Malta too (Gozo is still the same, a hole) all gone! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: They all wanted rid of us and got their wish, now their countries are really going down hill
