HMS Illustrious Med '87

HMS Illustrious' Mediterranean Tour 1987

During 1987 HMS Illustrious paid a visit to the Med for some Nautical Playtime  which also  included visits to Amsterdam, Naples, Hamburg, Majorca & Brest.

Some memories that have been thrown around already are Tom & Brum rolling around the floor with a couple of Wafu's in Brest, Jim Prince falling asleep on the flight deck and burning his face so badly that he had blisters on his face, Andy Fraser getting rolled in Naples and then getting rolled again when he chased after them and some of the younger lads being sold in Majorca.

Please send any memories and dits that you may have to editor@hmsillustriouscomms.co.uk
