Warrior Story

WOW!! What a year I'd just had, Called up in Oct'55, Square Bashing at 'Gamecock' Bramcote, Trade Training at 'Siskin' Gosport, Shore Base Draft to 'Fulmar' Lossiemouth. Then to top it all a Draft to 'Warrior', all in a year, what lies ahead next year?? With Andie Sparrow telling me the Warrior had a rubber deck and trials were about to commence for trying out Shackeltons on deck, and if they missed the arrestor wire, they just bounced off again, well who'd believe that!
