CCY Tweedie-Walker406 viewsHi Folks,
Anyone remember my dad in Malta in the 50s and then the 60s. 25 plus years service full time in the RN then after RNR. CCY Russell Manley Tweedie-Walker. Still have Pewter mug 1971 St Angelo Snrs mess I presume leaving present. I was at school in Malta from 67-70 don't remember where as all photos paper work etc lost during a flood in Scotland. My father crossed the line before I got to ask him many questions. But proud of him as all service personnel that dedicated life to Queen and country. I remember only doing swimming in rock pool for certificate, with sea urchins etc and prunes,warm milk.recorder and guitar lessons. I was 6 yrs old at the time in malta and remember being upset at not going to RN school but mixed school. Remember the pastor with the adams apple though.
