And don't forget the CCF. I managed to blag my way on RN courses, so flew in the Dragonfly helicopter, the Dominie (two planks, 2 turning not 2 burning) and saw the SRN-1 in the Solent, sailed in Portsmouth Harbour in a whaler and due to an incompetent schoolmaster dressed as RN officer helm collided with HMS Vanguard. I also went on a number of Army courses, including 2 drill courses in the Tower of London, as a 16 year old commanded a squad in front of the Sunday tourists and twice watched the Ceremony of the Keys on a foggy November evening. Now there is "atmosphere" for you. Long, long time ago now.
