View Full Version : BBC Sailor series - Cdr David Cowling (XO)

I was watching my DVD of Sailor last night and the episodes I watched featured the characterful Cdr XO - I think he was called David Cowling, but not certain of that.

Anyway, does anyone of this forum know if he was the same David Cowling who sadly died in August 1977 as a Captain? More details below:

RN Hospital Plymouth
COWLING, David R W, Captain, C002193F

Thanks in anticipation...

This thread (http://www.navy-net.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/p=162094/highlight=cowling.html#162094) doesn't confirm it, but it seems likely.
