Hi Alan & Gerry again...Do you have the badges for Ramilies and the Columbine?And by the way Alan...Thankyou for pointing out my Grandads last ship was the Columbine up to 1926 and not the 'Columbian' as I thought as it was , because when he was serving at Port Edgar in Scotland on the Columbine he must have met my Grandmother...She was a petite ,fiery (but lovely!)Scotswoman!

Lisa

To all of you who have been on a "west indies" commiss,....and your first stop was BERMUDA.
How many ships crests can you remember seeing ,along the wall, or other places where "jack" could paint a crest.

It was a very favorite spot to do some handy work.

Good information Cylla and Joseph. Does anybody know if they are still there - or if not when they went?

I was in Bermuda 1970-72 0n PHOEBE as West Indies Guardship we painted our crest on the dockyard wall along with all the others but sadley now the dockyard is in decline a old oppo of mine was there last year. The old Dockyard at Ireland Island is still there more or less, there has been some attempts to restore the ships crests around the dockyard walls and buildings but not with much success as most are beyond repair .The yard is now used for commercial shipping ie cruise ships etc .
Here's a few pix of what remains.
Regards
Dave

Sadly I never got to Bermuda, fascinating pics of the badges painted on the Dockyard wall, shame it's gone into decline, it would have been worth preserving surely?

Thanks a lot for those Dave. What a shame to see that interesting history such as those are being allowed to rot/fade away.

As Alan rightly said, surely they would have been worth preserving them?

I would have thought that it would have been a popular photo-point for all the cruise ship passengers.

Hello !!!! ??? Again, has anyone got any decent sized pics of the South African 'Tons' badges ?
(Would be nice if someone actually acknowledged a posting once in a while !! - I know Terry suffers from the same problem.......)

A simple 'NO' would have sufficed !!




(apologies if this offends but I'm full of the cold [Man-Flu] and have been in bed till 1pm today/yesterday & and have the patience of a serial killer !!!!!!)(Cough!)

Dave.

I was on Ireland island in 1952 when the dockyard was in its final destoring, there was an R & R camp close by, the Malabar club was still in use, and the senior Officer lived in RNOs cottage.

I dont know if these are still in in use.

I served on Hms Phoebe in 1968, it was not a happy ship in those days, I hope you had a happier time.

Regards

Harry

Harry,
Re MALABAR,
Spent Christmas 71 alongside at Hamilton as guardship for the talks between Ted Heath and Tricky Dickie Nixon which were held onboard GLAMORGAN lots of secret squirrels running aound like headless chickens.
Did a couple of maintenance periods in MALABAR as it was our base port for the west indies guardships,also a drydocking at Chaggers (Can't spell the correct version ) after the navi rammmed the jetty in the Bahamas and bent the bow
Have plenty of fond memories of the Trap (Star of Indian Club) as it was known locally, 6d would buy you a very large shot of any poison that took your fancy there was plenty of bonny sights to be seen after midnight i can tell yer.
PHOEBE wasn't the best ship i sailed on but as always in the mob you have to make the best of things.
Regards
Dave
