    Picked both these lots up locally. 2 different sailors. One was in R Division in the early 80's, the other was an Aviation Maintenance guy in 2 of the squadrons in the late 80's.

    First up is the Early 80's. Cruise tour included stops in Perth, Suez Canal, Gonzo Station, Indian Ocean, the Mediterranean, Portsmouth, an Equator crossing, and participation in Operation Northern Wedding.

    My picker brought me more from his neighbor that was in R Division in the early 80's. A few duplicates, but more for the collection.
