Wasn't that the irrepressible drunken loud eccentric BUT fantastic Charles Howeson. He was just something else My boss in Gib - had his mini-moke brought out on an RFA
Yep, the very same. The most eccentric XO I ever served with
Edited to add, having seen John's post above it was indeed the Cleopatra not Montrose! I was DWEO from 86 to 88.
Now then, I thought he left Cleo towards the end of 85? We'd sailed from Bermuda, on this occasion we lost the mail, Bermuda was my last foreign run before leaving Cleo in January 86.
I remember the years, coz we got back to blighty just in time for me to go the epic 4-3 defeat at Reading and then having left Cleo, whilst on leave went to Gillingham 1-1 and the 0-3 win at Wolves.
