Hi there Falmouths, hoping all are well/best as can be! This is Buster Brown, AB Gunner on the1970/1972 commission. The Stokers name that survived the fall into the Gib. drydock 1971 was Houston if memory serves, he was on the jetty on our return to Pompey in Nov.1972. I meet up with Baz Snee in Pensacola, Florida 2008, he has now moved to Spain. Where did Dave Pym and Dusty Miller get to? Keep things tight, any reunions arranged in near future? Posted September 2019.

Aye Buster

I stumbled on your site whilst trying to get service history on HMS Falmouth. I found it interesting reading the memoirs of the ships company, at various stages of their service careers. Do you have the same message board for most of Royal Navy ships? I have enjoyed reading through the messages and memories it brings back to me.

Kind regards,

Dave Varey and I have lunch every couple of weeks or so after we met up by chance in Asda's Supermarket Waterlooville  55 YEARS after serving together on The First Commish. We instantly recognised each other, how, I don't know. I stayed in the mob and was fortunate enough to clock up 40 years, which keeps me in motion lotion for my motor home. Look forward to a reply.

Yours aye,

I remember Chalky Hamilton (Message #23) well from our deployment to Australia in 79. I was killick of the mess. Great bunch of lads in the seaman's mess and a great time. I did another 11 years, but skinny dipping in Mackay Queensland, Samoa and Fiji remain in my head.

Looking for any information or anyone who knew him about my father Clifford Pedley PO or CPO who served on HMS Falmouth in the mid to late 1970's then finished his naval career at HMS Collingwood.

Many thanks,
Richard Pedley
