In the days when the Royal Navy had STYLE!
Where has all that Charisma gone ?

The proper Admirals and those resplendent Admirals of the Fleet.

Do YOU remember them ?

WHO IS MISSING FROM THIS GROUP OF OFFICERS ?

IT IS THIS MAN

 

Admiral of the Fleet Lord Fieldhouse GCB photographed when Admiral Sir John Fieldhouse KCB and
one of my heroes. Famous submariner and Hero of the Falklands War in 1982 as the Commander-in-Chief.

Sadly, the group above was photographed in February 1992 whilst attending the funeral of Lord Fieldhouse of Gosport.

They are, from left to right:-

Memories of British Ambassador`s and Naval Icons.

Regrettably, they don`t breed men like these anymore !
