    Vernon. It seems as if that was Castlenordre near Toulous. Were you a 'Foreigner' and was it on your way to 'Le Rep' . Mike

    No Mike,
    It was at the old Fort at Vincennes, my Brother and i walked there from Vincennes station and i remember the sign on those huge Wooden Gates saying
    bureau d'engagement - legion entrangere

    As i said it isnt something i wish to remember too much!
    Only bad memories of what happened after that!

    Cheers

    Default Birthdays

    Hi All.
    For the life of me I can't ever remember having a birthday when I was at sea.
    I had to work it out on my discharge book what ship i was on when I had my 21st. British Piper probably up the Persian Gulf eating that awfull grub they served up.
    cheers Des

    I was on the Ivernia, sitting in my cabin with a pint feeling sorry for myself when a couple of the lads called me into the next cabin. There too was the cake of mashed spuds and most of the tourist wingers turned out to be quite a night. Nice to have friends. Pete in sunny California
