Great find, QRK2. Thanks for putting it up. Lovely to be able to put voices to the names and to listen to the interesting commentary from Horrocks and Forfar and from the vets' own stories as they enjoy their reunion day.
The matlots orgainisng bording parties must be possibly the last time that ever happened?

Do they even train for that anymore? Or is it purely an RM thing now?
They have boat crews for searches etc.
But actually attacking an enemy boat by boarding it! that had gone into history before ww1.
