Age 15 years, 3 months and 3 days. Height 5'-1". Weight 7st-2lb, this is an account of my first month in Royal Navy, starting January 1963.
HMS Ganges was tough, but I loved it. 1963 was the worst winter ever, the 'mother' of all winters. I was in Exmouth 213 class.
The food, the food, the food. I loved the food.
