Back to base...

As we returned from yesterday's shout, those crew who had been left behind were finishing swapping over our own ILB which had just returned from it's refit.

After being offloaded from the truck into the water, it was motored round to our slipway, before being expertly driven back onto it's trolley by Tom in a virtuoso display of helmsmanship. Tonight it was taken to sea for a sea trial and by all accounts it performed very well.

Welcome back Jack!

By the way Gav, 'Stoical' is defined by Wikipedia as: Enduring pain and hardship without showing feeling or complaint. It stems from the Greek school of philosophy founded by Zeno who said; "a Stoic achieves happiness by submission to destiny."
