Oh, proud, glad it was the Navy. Hope my kids never have to – or my grandkids or anybody, because I think it is a disruption.

It's, I can remember my cousin coming on board the ship when we were at Milne Bay one day and saying to him β€œcan you imagine any other life but this?” – cause you spend three and a half four years in the Navy seems that's what you are going to do for the rest of your life.

And, no but I was always very proud to be a sailor, and proud to be a Coxswain, and proud to be able to do what I did.
