Sid's N T I N S Locker
By John Wynn      20 October 1999
While standing alone in the Forward Torpedo Room the best part of the TORSK weekend kinda snuck up on me and hit me between the eyes .

Forty years suddenly vanished and it was just me and Joe Seabo shootin' the bull. Me doing my qualification drawings on the port mine table and Joe leanin' back in his chair as the bow rose up to clear each wave and then crash down into the next one.

We could hear the water rushing through the superstructure above as she shuddered to rise for the next wave.

I was 18 and we were on our way to England.

My whole life was ahead of me.
