    Hi Albie… Re the “two star”C/Tel Granny Thompson……from memory…which is of course
    fallible nowadays… he was a “W/T 1 Higher”.this was under the “öld system” before we had the
    “Ïnstructor” designation…(you can remember that)..
    Again, if my memory serves me correctly, Granny was a L/Tel on HMS Cossack and was in
    the Boarding Party of the Ältmark”in the Norwegian Fiord that freed all the Merchant Seamen
    that had been captured by the “Graf Spee”

    I can remember being in PCO Philomel with Casey Bond and again I think Bluey Gilmour on Bellona
