Onboard Nov 1971 until May 1973.  FN MM striker / MM3 worked in A Division.  Our division officer was CWO2 Bingham.  I work for Chief Braun and MM1 Kiffner on air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment.  Always interested in chatting with others that were onboard during that time.

@Howard: It would be hard to forget me, particularly if one was needing the services of the swab in my right hand after a port visit! :-)
