I am researching my late fathers history. He signed up in October 1936 [boy] retired Sept.1960 MAA. For most of his service he was an RPO. His name was Martin Lee [nickname Tansey (of course)]

Served on HMS; Ramillies 1937;York 1938;Orion 1939;Phoebe 1940;Belvoir 1942;Swiftsure 1944;Triumph 1949;Jamaica , and then various shore based duties. Mostly London, Hednesford refugee camp and Rosyth dockyard.

Any information about him would be welcome. Many thanks, Peter Lee

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Derek Lawrece. He was my instructor for both for my LReg and RPO's courses roundabout 1970- 1973. He was a fellow officer and friend and a very nice man. Derek, RIP. John Buchanan.

A personal thank you, to all the RBA 93 team. The work, Dave Addis, John Masterson, Tony Kenny, Father Mike, Paula Gent et al put in to ensuring the smooth operation of an exceptional reunion weekend is amazing. Thanks must also go to Vanessa from Isle of Wight Tours, incredible. BZ. The service of dedication of 'our' memorial at NMA on Sunday was both moving and inspirational.

I just want to clear up a point John Buchanan made on 17/12/15. John it wasn't my left foot I lost but my right leg above the knee following an infection I got after breaking my left leg, sepsis is a nasty thing glad they caught it in time although not before I had a cardiac arrest. However still here in the west country plodding along in a wheelchair or on a prosthesis. Nice to read about how folks are getting along, regards and good luck to you all.

Have just read the very well worded 'History' which adds context to my last question! Did not realise that LREGS were replaced with Writers. Made sense it was very much an admin role. Many reggies from non-seaman branches were shocked to find themselves, for the first time, behind the wheel of a frigate at specials transiting narrow channels! That must have been a throw-back when most reggies were from the ops branch? Did a unskilled reggie helmsman at special on thw wheel ever run a vessel aground or hit something due to his/her inexperience?

I notice that the 3rd March saw the passing out of the first Direct Entry AB Regulators?
That will be interesting to say the least!
What do retired reggies say about this?
