Yep.
On reflection i think we should consider changing the venue from the cloud and harp to the fire and brimstones arms. At least we would guarantee a 99 per cent turn out, I'm Sure St Peter would allow me a day pass out to come.

No doubt whatsoever - I'm already booked in down there and the first round is on me.

Yes, six years on and the bugger is still dead and I still miss him every day of my life. And he still owes me £165 quid in petrol money for that helicopter of his! Wait 'til I see him.

Would have loved to have met the guy, but alas it was not meant to be. He will be laughing at you as we speak waving a fist full of tenners as if to say HA..HA ! But just tell him he isn't getting his heater back !

Great doc... Nice to see him being interviewed etc, on the other Britannic documentaries (of which there are a few) he always seemed to have a cameo role.

Also is it just me or is Simon, the wrecks owner, actually the guy that used to be on the TV in the 80's and very early 90's who was a wildlife guru ?

Having a couple of rare days off work and managed to watch the link to "The Curse of the sisters ships". Fascinating stuff and well worth a watch. This put me on to another link on U Tube re the Japaneses actually using midget subs to attack Pearl Harbour fascinating never heard that mentioned in Tora Tora Tora movie :D . In their investigation they searched for No. 5 Midget sub to see if infact it had released its torpedo's, what a coincidence as Carl was working on finding out whatever happened to X5 midget submarine during World War II and whether or not she had laid its charges under the German battleship the Tirpitz ? Henti Creer was described to me as being a very unorthodox person or wording to to that effect to strong to repeat here. Would be nice one day though to go try out that theory Mr. Smith and what a prize it would be if found without charges :you could then dedicate it to your old pal Carl Spencer's memory.
