Regent-NS.jpg
RFA Regent - 1974131 viewsRFA Regent 1974 Dartmouth, Nova Scotia for 28 days then exercise in Arctic.

Centre: Choff: Tom (Twisty) McKernon, STO(N) David Young, Captain Toby Groves? Chief Engineer Bertie Hawk (later Commodore (E).

Narrative from Steve Rhodes: CAN ANYONE GIVE NAMES, L -> R / Front/Back etc?

That is Ray between the two white shirts on the extreme left as we look. I think the STO(N) is DK Young and the PTO is there - wee Hughie Bain. I also see Archie Moffatt, John Kearley and Maurice Vincent, Charlie Jones a CO from Rosyth and a SOG called Andy Anderson. On the extreme right there is a lad from Exeter called John Palmer and somewhere in there is probably Des Edwards and a Pompey lad called Brian Grice

Phot Tnx to Mike Temlett.
