Well Done. Speedy Gonzales ;o)

And a bit more information click here

Spent too much time on Pompey based ships. Bingalau must have served at Southsea Barracks.

It is the only one I knew - and I was too slow. Woolwell - you mean RM Eastney and Fort Cumberland - now sadly sold, except for the Royal Marines Museum in the old Officers Mess. Bingalau and I both served there (I am sure)

  Brumas 23:49 17 Apr 09

Woolwell - thanks for the extra info.
john bunyan - better luck next time.

Also, finally, in the rose gardens nearby is a memorial to the "Cockleshell Heroes" of Op Frankton - what was then the RMBPD trained there until about 1954.

One of the classic wartime films and a particular favourite of mine.

john bunyan and Brumas. (by the way I noticed you waited until I had retired before putting that one on) Yes John I served there of course and know it well and just for Brumas, I was actually in that picture. My CO Captain (then) "Pug" Davies managed to get a gang of us in the film as extras, I did a few takes as one of the frogmen in the underwater scenes. So there you go Brumas, You didn't know I was a stunt-man did you? The only other thing I remember about staying in Elstree studios was talking and sometimes singing along with Max Bygraves at lunch times. He was doing another picture at the time. Oh yes our Sergeant's Major copped off with the Wardrobe mistress. I'm a mine of useless information aren't I?

I'll look at you in a new light now lovey, respect ;o)
