In the early 60's did many patrols during the Cod War around Iceland stopping the Icelandic gun boats - Thor and Odin from damaging out trawlers. Got quite nasty and dangerous at times - was serving on HMS Palisser. We were never recognised apart from the crews of the trawlers.
The first posting i had after training was an ICM Base and I knew that we would have been a prime target had it kicked off. I fully support this.
I was released after four hours by an understanding Russian officer. Not nice and I can still remember the trauma I went through at the time. A long time ago now!
Also the veterans badge is a nice token to wear with pride, but it is not very well made and they keep breaking.
