Back in 1969 while a GC at RMA Sandhurst we had a few days with other services, I spent two days in HMS Artemis and the wonders of the dreaded "heads" and nearly got my own back. The second service visit was 11 hours in a Shackleton, 2000000 rivets flying in close formation. I thought it was only a method of proving to you that the army was the right career.
