HMS Ocean

HMS Ocean - "a bit tipsy" - Where was she?

A heavy swell caused Ocean to roll a bit in the Irish Sea. Later, she dropped anchor in Milford Haven were she still had an uncomfortable night. Who can remember a "rogue" fork lift that careered across the hanger that night and severed an air pressure line. "Jimmy" as I remember, in his pyjamas, took charge. Bit of a panic, but not half as in the morning when it was discovered there was an avgas leak in the for'ward liftwell! Good old "Jack" cleared it up with buckets and squeegees...no problem.
