849 'B' Flt '85 - '87 We had some excellent runs during this period, I've got a lot of good memories....... particularly an 18-day detachment to NAS Cecil Field, Florida in '87.
I remember the 3 guys off 820 who were killed, too, in a car accident while we were alongside in Ft. Lauderdale. A sad day indeed.

Really good site which brought back many memories. I served for nearly seven years on the old Ark Royal (The REAL one) as an Aircraft Handler, so the name is a powerful one for me. I also served for two years onboard one of this Ark Royal's sister ships but the experience was largely a 'let down' after the old Ark. Happy days though...great site...well done to all concerned.
