Fort Austin 1980

Derek Holden, front left (apparently the first ever RFA Engineer cadet).
Pic. from Robin Bailey who seemed to remember Derek keeping a steering wheel under his bunk which belonged to the car he wrote off.

I sailed with Derek in Sir Lancelot in 1976 when every time we changed engine revs during the night Derek wanted me to telephone him to tell him we hadn't had a machinery failure. Really nice guy but a real bag of nerves. Is that Paul Farrow 2nd from the left in the back row?

Bottom row. Fridge Engineer Andy Stirling in middle. Sadly deceased a few years ago.

I always think of Andy when I attend a Burns night dinner. Dave McKenzie back row second from right.
