|Thread: Insanity seems to be setting in|
When I joined the RN (FAA) in the sixties smoking was the norm, Blue Liners (Navy cigs) were very cheap and you were the odd one out if you didn't smoke!
Seven shillings and six pence for 300 per month if I remember correctly. Flynavy?

My current dashcam has decided to pop its socks. It's three years old so I'm looking to replace it with one that also has a rear camera.
Recommendations please people.

I worked on them (both types) as a very young Air Mech (A&E) at Brawdy in 1965 during my first posting after tech training. Fascinating aircraft with the double Mamba engine(s). Quite a climb to the pilot's cockpit I remember!

Met an old ex RN friend recently who I hadn't seen for several years. Turns out he took that option three years ago.
He has check ups annually and the downside is that he can no longer rise to the occasion, but as he's eighty, he isn't too concerned about that, still enjoys a tot and feels fine.

PS My brother Danny Shepherd was on Phantoms, 893 Ark Royal as I remember.
