    It is never too late to be what you might have been.

    Admiral Sir Jeremy Black & Graham

    Not Lowie related but was saddened to hear today of the crossing of the bar of JJ Black, one opf the finest officers i served with and it didnt matter if you were the President of the USA or a tramp on the street , he treated everybody equal, often found outside the SRs mess at midnight waiting for a call round.( when id sneak a tot from his bar )

    On another note my oppo Graham from the Droylsden RNA who had just got on the mend from throat cancer had a Heart Attack and crossed the bar this morning, a great guy and always good for a drink (even though he was Scottish) attended every RNA function or event and has left a lot of happy memories from his friendship.

    RIP shipmates you served the Andrew well, sleep tight, watch done

    That's a shame.
    JJ Black took over as Captain of the Fife just before I left her. I don't really remember him but I know that his reputation preceded him and those that knew him on board were really pleased he was taking over.
    Rip gents.
