In 1990 I completed my last sea time service sailing from Halifax NS aboard the Royal Navy carrier HMS Ark Royal. I was an exchange escort officer for a group of fifty cadets. Unfortunately due to weather I never experienced the Harrier jump jets taking off. We sailed down the East coast of the US. The last port of call was Boston, where I left the ship and the sea for the final time wearing my uniform.
