That way, I could still send OK in spite of any conditions.
So, during a 7-week detached duty (see service record) to VHM from Ibis in 67, I was trying to eliminate the buzzing from the hacksaw blade when sending over 20wpm, & also trying to make my keying as good as possible anyway, given the amount of crappy sidewanker sending that abounded in pussers @ the time.
The aim of this page is to pass on articles of interest to serving & ex-serving Communicators and interested parties.

At the first stages, all the participants in Guilford’s original study censored their own thinking by limiting the possible solutions to those within the imaginary square (even those who eventually solved the puzzle).

I also find it rather confusing, some of the official propaganda the navy has written regarding that night.I consider Les Catton as one of my greatest ever mates, a man of integrity beyond reproach, and in my books, a hero on the night of 24/. Yes, we did eventually try to escape to the open sea, as did Attack, but this was not the initial situation.Arrow had been ordered to one of the 2 cyclone buoys in the harbour, and Attack secured to the other.
