Portrait Sailor Close-Up, January 1942


About this memory

John Maley.

"Called up to the Fleet-Air-Arm in January 1942. We would be here for a five-week disciplinary course. Our instructor was leading seaman Hopkins, a suvivor from a tribal class destroyer. When we were leaving we shook his hand and told him how glad we were to be leaving. He said 'Some day you will wish you were back here.'" - John Maley
