good afternoon to all of those that served on danae.
My name is Kevin Batchelor and i am the OiC of hitchin sea cadets [ the other unit named after HMS danae.]
we as a unit are 70 years old next year and are looking to both make and maintain contact with all who served on the ship. We are also looking to borrow or have electronically any photos of the ship whilst she was in service.
we will be marking the 70 years at events next year and of course I will keep you informed.
regards to you all
PO[scc] k. Batchelor}

Just spent the last few hours (when I should be working) going through the site. I servered mid to late eighties. joined as a PO and left as a Chief. Saw Bob McIntyres section - Photos showed a lot of familiar faces. I took over from Bob (quite daunting for a young PO straight from Mechs course) But he helped me no end, to which I was very grateful. 'Soapy' Watson too! Happy Days. Find me on Facebook and Friends reunited.

I wwas part of a band with Mal Haddon and JC Hodges...from what I remember you used to like the odd run ashore. And you had a bit of a conflict of views with Tansy Lee! na,mes that also spring to mind...Steve Tones, Eric Ambler, Dave Allport...Taff Thomas...and my sea dad (and townie) ,Buck Taylor. Had a full set that Brian Blessed would be proud of.

What you up to these days?

sid Creasey:

Hi to all of the ex crews. A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you all

Nobby Halls:
I remember joing Danae in the Sychelles when she was on her way back from the far east. 1974 just after the Cyprus crisis. I played hockey on the day I arrived and made new friends. The ship was badly infested with cockroaches and had to be fumigated in Guzz. I remember that there had been a boating accident and some people were killed but it wasnt spoken about. We stopped in Cape Town and I did shore patrol in a posh hotel residents bar under the direction of a PO chef. We had to buy our own railway tickets to cape town as the ship was in simonstown. In Gibralter on the way back there was a squadron tug of war which went wrong and people got injured (broken bones) when the winners let go and the shackel on the end of the rope took them out. I also remember a big brave sailor and his royal marine chum ganging up on me during a run ashore in Hull. I think they didnt like me because I was an apprentice.

Hi, are you the Buck Rodgers that served onboard 84/85/86ish? I served 84-87 - if you're the Buck I know we lived in a flat with a Stoker called Kipper during a refit about 85/6, it was in the sheds in Guz at the time, flat was in Moleworth Street just off the Strip - had a great time, many hours in Boobs etc and then staggered home you always had a girl with you I never did - too ugly - best wishes even if you're the wrong person - only found the site today is great

HMS Danae was a grand ship and a great crew. Your old shipmates from the USS Taylor FFG 50 (STANAVFORLANT 87) still talk about all those good times we shared when we gather. Wish all of you the best, and happy holidays this season...

Splice the Main Brace!

hello all my old Danae shipmates from 84 - 87. It was good to see you all had a fantastic time at the latest reunion in Bristol.It looks like a lot of effort had gone in to making the event very special. Sorry I couldn't be with you but some of us have to work nights you know !!!!!! Hopefully I will see you all again soon. Nice to see Bad Ass still looks mean and moody and as usual half cut. I assume the photo was taken early in the evening if Guzz was anything to go by!Take care fellas and hope to catch up soon. P.s the reunion in Gib sounds like a top idea Dicky......
