remember Buster as a fun loving member of the PO's Mess, he always
joined in the many 'Parties' we had, never heard him complain and
seemed to enjoy his job. Rest in Peace Shipmate and sincere
condolences to your Family.
Calm Seas and Fair winds now you are at
RIP Old Ship Mate I was the
Comms LWEM(R) 81-84, spent many hours working together
keeping the radio section on-line , I remember one time we
were both dragged over the coals by the Skipper because he
could see the rest of the South Atlantic squadron but could
not speak to them on HF, you sent me to explain to him skip
distance? As he was an old Gunnery Officer my words falling
on deaf ears were beyond a joke, he complained his tranny
radio could get better World Service than the Ships
Receivers and kicked me out of his cabin, thanks ship mate
rest in peace.
Also remember the Old Man
calling HMS Bristolís Comms team over to check us out? All
they did was screw up more by knocking the FSA of line and
tripping the whole Comms section, and Bristolís Team
concluded we were top line for an old war horse.
Sad sad news,rest in peace
George n Julie Proud
daughter of John Prior, ex-HMS Danae (Comms branch). Remember
Buster very well, a lovely man, who me and my sister thought the
world of. So very sorry to hear this sad news, my thoughts are
very much with Anne, Rachel and Alex.
Buster was my
opposite number comms senior rate on the Danae from coming out
of refit. Great bloke, I lost touch with him which was a shame
as we got on really well. Stanavforlant early 82 was a great
proving ground for both of us and and many a good run ashore was
had. Very fond memories thanks Buster and RIP
