David kelly my master.

missing my walks already, love from your pal Bilbo By Kathy kelly. on 25 Jan 2013

A really good bloke!

Dave was my boss when we served together in HMS Bacchante (1973-74). We worked together on the ship's sonar systems and got on really well, even though I was a Tiff, and he was - in tiffy terms, an ex-milk churn (a rude reference to the square rigged sailor's hat - we wore fore and aft rig). He was a smashing man; always calm, keen on sun, large ice creams and cricket, and he brought my birthday presents from the UK to the ship (we were in Curacao) in 1974! The memories come flooding back! I'm glad we stayed in touch (because he was, after all, married to a smashing girl!). Gordon and Diana Morris By Gordon Morris on 25 Jan 2013
