    I served on HMS Beachampton in the Gulf in 1970/1971. I would like to join the TCA.

  2. I served on HMS Kirkliston as POREL from 16 April 1972 to 11 March 1973 having flown out to Hong Kong. We subsequently sailed back to the UK and the arrival date at Portsmouth, in the publication, could be correct. The first person on board was the Saccone and Speed rep who came to fit the beer pump in the Senior Rate’s Mess (lol) then some of the crew (generally locals) were granted some leave but those living further afield like me ended up being on duty. (I lived in Fife). The entry in the publication dated Oct 72-Oct 73 is wrong. After our crew came back from leave we sailed for HMS Lochinvar where we became part of 1MCMS. During that time we carried out stop and search operations in the Irish Sea looking for anything that may have been going to the IRA. I left Kirkliston for HMS Cochrane and subsequent demob from the RN. I did know of the refit planned in Gibraltar (as mentioned in the publication) but as I had left the Navy by then I do not have the dates that it was there. Hope this helps.
