      Hey Buck!! How are yer!
      Yeah I also remember that Monkey we had on Royalist> . If I recall, Seaman Boy Joey Banks “acquired it” in Sierra Leone .Was given permission from the Commander thru our skipper Peter Phipps to keep it onboard until we got to Mauritius. I recall one of the Sailmakers onboard made a “mick” for it which was slung in the Boys Mess Deck across the Stbd side from us Comms.mess. I believe the Boys taught it to give itself a “you know wot” in its mick.!

    Well done lads,, Taff Jones came out with the first 4 frigates on TAUPO the Leader of The 11th Frigate. Being a leader was a Chiefs perk(?). I met him later in TAUPO to KOREA in 1951, I was Killick, Taff was unhappy as the skipper was only 2 1/2 Taff said he was not entitled to a CYS. Was shipped on first RNZN ship going home. We got BLUE Gilmore Y.S who was last out commission.
