Wow dinner with the First Sea Lord!!!never happen in my time in the navy!!! The best that I can come up with was a Sunday dinner with my Divisional Officer at HMS Ganges. Four leading boys were invited to the home (Married Quarters) of Lieutenant Brown and his wife for a lovely meal. Dress uniforms, best manners, best behaviour, and offer to do the dishes (declined). It was an amazing break from the food served at the mess hall, but no Admirals. The times they are a changing eh!!!!

God Bless and keep reading
