Just remembering after passing out of Raleigh I was flown alone to Singapore to join Dido as JS2. I think to replace someone - don’t remember being told. All a bit of a wake up call. Seems a long time ago now, and it was.

On behalf of my Father - Peter William Raggett - Stoker . Best wishes lads . My father kept a lot to himself about his service but you could tell how proud he was to have served with the Dido crew . I do remember him saying that the only time he was allowed on deck was at night to have a smoke . Kept up the stuyvesants till 1999 and a ripe age of 79
