I was a stoker petty officer serving onboard HMS Loch Killisport when this picture was taken in 1964 and left her later on that year under the new triple drafting scheme. She was indeed a happy ship during our commission - although we were not too happy when we lost our Captain F of the 3rd Frigate Squadron status at some time during the commish. Is there anyone out there who remembers me? - if so please do get in touch.

hi, my son is in toronto works for eds. There is a shipmate living here in Dundee just down the road from me by the name of Bell. I had him up to let him see a video of the killisport when she was in the far east. He went to Sidney on her was you on board at that time, there is a scene when the lads were swimming in a pool there

My first draft was to Loch Killisport early 65 in Singers until she paid off in Portsmouth, best run I ever had while in the RN.

Added by Brian Barnes on 06 December 2007.
I was a very sea sick and unhappy junior seaman on board Loch Killisport when this photo was taken. We lost the Captain F because our captain (Capt Simpson) had his mistress on board the whole time (she was the wife of a Hong Kong millionaire.
And they say there is no romance in the Navy!

Added by Buck on 26 December 2007.
I joined her in '61 as Stoker, took her from Rosyth went to Far East, I well remember Capt.Fell also Capt.Simpson and mistress.She was the best ship I served on, with happy crews, I did 2 commisions out there and came home during the last part of the the third.

I served on HMS Loch Killisport from January 1962 to April 1964 and served under Capt Simpson. I was a Leading Radio Operator and I remember Gladys Harris and Ray Ellery. I too was saddened when I learnt of Lt Briggs' death. As an LRO I worked quite closely with him on updating the various communication books etc. He was a pleasure to work with.

Added by Trevor Evans on 07 December 2008.
I was an ERA1 1964/65, on the Loch Killisport and was onboard when this photo was taken in Hong Kong, it was a happy ship and I remember what a gentleman Ted Briggs was. I later, 1967/69, went on to serve on HMS Carysfort with Jimmy (Moonman) Green and Blossom Petchey, still in touch with Jimmy.

Added by Ken Beales on 08 December 2008.
For those who might remember it, there was a night while on patrol around Borneo, that the crew of the Loch Killisport was asked to give blood to a lady in a very remote location who was giving birth to a child. In fact, I think our medics assisted in getting the blood to her. Both lady and child survived and this was in no small part played by the crew of the Loch Killisport who donated our blood for the cause.

Hi Ken sorry in being late in answering, I transferred from the frigate WHITESAND BAY to the LOCH KILLISPORT in 55 and spent most of our commission in the Persian Gulf ---no air conditioning in the old girl then, full of cockroaches in our tinned condensed milk, but a happy ships company, served in the RN from 1953 until 1973, rated CPO in 1970, spent another 8 years in the Naval Reserve- would do it all again if I had my life back- a great experience.

Added by Dave Whitfield on 08 December 2008.
Hi Dave: Better late than never.Thanks for your comments and update. Cheers, Ken

Added by Ken Watson on 09 December 2008.
Hi Dave, Must have been onboard Loch Killisport same time as you, I to transfered from Whitesandbay in 55, due to rough seas after trip from Ireland which as i remember was due to forward paintstore being flooded out, you are right about the cockroaches I remember them well, I also remember picking up Archbishop Marcarius from Cyprus takeing him to Mauritius which turned out to a fab run ashore. I could go on forever, they were good days, and a great ships Company.

Added by John Serls on 26 February 2009.
I was also on Loch Killisport when this photo was taken. I transferred from Loch Fada to F3 staff LRO(T).Remember Capt. Simpson well,(didn't like him!) but as our DO Tedd Briggs was a gentleman. My happiest time at sea was definately on Loch Killisport. Still in touch with RO2 Alastair Rutherford. Would like to contact LRO (Taff) Trevor Evans.I still have a few good photos of that commission.

Hello Dave I was aboard Lock Killisport when this photo was taken i was terribly seasick and homesick funny how im nostalgic about it now, my claim to fame was that i was the lookout who after endless hours lost in the Indian Ocean i saw a flashing light, and saved us all lol anyone know what happened to Pip Neal

Added by Bob (Buck ) Taylor junior seaman on 15 October 2009.
Gentlemen,this is a new website for me, but I am keen to offer a pic of Loch Killisport which I took in 1958 when I was sailing in BI's SS Umaria - thats right, Merchant Navy, not HM's version! I was Junior Engineer Officer in those days. The correspondence above convinces me that there was not all that much difference between both services, respect for fellow sailors and love of ship being the common denominators. Best wishes for your website.PS, does anyone recognise the port? Singapore, Hong Kong or even Japan?

Added by Jim Devine on 06 January 2010.
Hong Kong. Short walk to the China Fleet club.
I have very vivid memories as Q.M on watch when millions of large cockroaches, (I think), swarmed down the wharf late one night. Quickest time I ever picked up a deck brush.

Added by Brian Barnes on 06 January 2010.
the photo brings back many happy memories,i served as a boy on her i have never heard a bad word from anyone about that ship. Pity others could not follow her example

Added by George Angus on 21 January 2010.
I'm afraid its a different Navy today George. I was in Sierra Leone a few years ago and bumped into a group off HMS Ocean going on "holiday". I dare say that we would have received seven days 9's if we'd dressed as they were.

Added by Brian Barnes on 21 January 2010.
good to hear from you brian, i don't think the navy has changed, your mention about holiday sums it up nicely.

Very nice to read all the comments about what a happy ship the Loch Killisport was during her Far East time 1962-65. I was the 'postie' on her for most of that time. Any body remember me Rocky Stoneman a L/Sea.
I now belong to the "Lochie Association" wonderful group of Ex Loch/Bay Class shipmates.
Look them on the net shipmates. Anumber of ex L.Killisport are members and it's great to meet up and talk over old time as we did this year.
I was lucky enough to meet up with Captain/ Admiral Mick Fell in Gib later in my RN days when I was a ChOEMn. Hadn't forgotten me took me up homers for a drink out there. Sadly he died a number of years ago.


Added by Rocky Stoneman on 05 July 2010.
Hello my name is Ian MacDonald. I've also looked from time to time for references to Loch Killisport and just found this one whilst looking back at Hong Kong because my son is going there shortly. Anyway, I would have been onboard when this picture was taken. I joined the ship in Singapore on a phased draft in Feb 1964 (I think we left from Stansted on the 4th) I was 17 years old an Ord Seaman Radar Plotter (Spare the Jokes)I did a year and a half in the Far East and took her home to Portsmouth through Suez in Aug/Sep 1965. Went to Honk Kong several times. Loved it, Can't remember too many names, Remember Ted Briggs though and I have a life long friend Terry Lambert who was a radio greenie.(REM) I have lots and lots of photos though. So plenty of faces to remember.Served in every part of ship, Quaterdeck, Messdecks, forecastle and funnily enough I even worked in the gunners party (As and RP)looking after that Bofors gun on the after end. Ended up as the painter though and worked in that little cubbie hole up forward dishing out pots of paint to everyone. Did that until we decommissioned in Pompey. Good Days, good memories the best of the many ships I served on. Or was it that I was so young at the time? Anyway if anyone out there can remember getting that pot of Pussers grey paint from me let me know.

Added by Ian MacDonald on 23 February 2011.
I was at the Bodmin remembrance service and was at last able to wear the pjm with some pride and thought about all the crew of 1963-1964 and good memories came flooding, reached 65 and now retired

Thought about you all yesterday at Bodmin remembrance parade, 66 birthday as well, Jan Ellery is an old man these days, but not so in 1963, I am also a member of the Loch class frigates asoc.

Added by Jan Ellery J/s O.d Vd And Scar on 12 November 2012.
Friends,

I found a bit of trivia about the LOCH KILLISPORT. I believe she makes a brief appearance (at about 37 minutes into the film, probably stock footage, but you can see F628 on her side) in the 1959 film, "The Giant Behemoth."
(In case anyone cares, it's actually a passably good film, for a 1950s monster movie, at least, with an interesting "We need to take care of nature or it will take care of us" message.)
I thought you would like to know.

Thank you, all of you, for helping keep us safe during the Cold War.

An American Friend.

Brings back so many good memories to me. I was a j.s on Killi '64 to '65 and bought her home to Pompey in '65 then joined reserve ships unit in Pompey prior to joining Maidstone in Scotland in '66.

Added by Bob Thorne on 02 February 2014.
I was A/B on the Killi 64/65. Remember well refit in Singers, deployment to Borneo/Wallace Bay; escorting gun running boat to (I think) Penang; running aground in Kuching on approach to pick up departing Governor with bootneck band on the q-deck toppling over each other (still blowing their wind instruments)! and the infamous RAS with the 'Tideflow' in Sept. 63. The grey cells are in retreat, but still remember Scouse Hardy, Steve Otton, Pete Sayers, Knobby Hall, Spud Murphy, Jim Green, Capt. Simpson, Lt. Cmdr. Erskine, and lastly Lt. Ted. Briggs (RIP).

Added by A/B (TAS) Andy 'Harry' Harrington on 01 March 2014.
I was on Killi 63/64. Remeber well refit in singers; ramming the Tideflow during a RAS Sept.63; detaing/escorting gun running pirates off Borneo; running aground in Kuching; Capt. Simpson being relieved of command; Lt. Cmdr. Erskine taking command; all good maerial for a book! Grey cells on the decline, but recall well 'Scouse; Hardy, Pete Sayers, 'Spud' Murphy, Knobby Hall, Jim Green, and the bloody 'pop' group I sang with - the'Delmontes' (no comments please) - or something similar. Living in Fareham, I was sad to read in the local paper of the passing of Ted Briggs, a true gent.

Hi one and all who served on the Loch Killisport. My name is AB John Hudson, I to was on that patol and it was the first time that I ever gave blood. It started a long career of giving I just hope that after all these years they are still on the go. It was a good comish.

Yes...Happy times times indeed. I was LS QM (think Bob Thorne was my BM for a short while)....until one monsoon morning (pissing down)...I decided it would be better to clean the Q.deck brass name plates when the rain had ceased. This didn't suit the Coxn at the time (think his name was Norman Dodswell) and so he charged me with 'direct disobedience' I fronted Lt Cmdr Erskine who tried his level best to squash the charge....but I stuck to my word and told the truth...5 minutes later I was back to AB.

Hi everyone. A bit of info for those who may be interested - Maritime Books, Lodge Hill, Liskeard, Cornwall. Tel: 01579 343663 have published a book about LOCH CLASS FRIGATES. It is the histories of ALL Loch Class vessels. If you phone you will pay £20 instead of £25(including P + P). There are six photos of the Killie and is in my opinion, a very good publication.

Memories! I left Ganges in 1956 to join L K as the only Junior Sparker onboard - Ian (typhoon - or sometimes otherwise called) Tyson. There were 12 (?) other juniors joined from Vincent - seaman I think. Loads of dits available but my claim to fame was being halfway through the middle watch when the 'Flash' signal from Admiralty to GGSX ( our call sign) came through. Rousing the bridge everyone was soon up as the very long signal was decoded telling us to divert and proceed through the suez. I stayed on watch and read morse non stop until fully received about 0730 - POTS McDonnel decoding and Bonts (Bontoft) my relief allowed to stay in his 'Mick' longer than he had ever hoped for. The signal told us, among meant other things), to stow all ammo below the waterline, cover and depress the guns, fly white ensigns from every mast and - if fired upon to not return fire but make a dash for it. The welcome we got in Port Said was unforgettable.
I went on to join the Appleton for a short while, got married (soon to be our 60th) and then spent the next 27 years in boats - submarines) leaving in 1985.
Final memory for now - who remembers pulling two tankers off the reefs in 24 hours - Ethel Monarch and Olympic Games.
All the best.

Added by Jess Owen on 15 November 2016.
I have a very fond memory of being invited on board the H.M.S. Loch Killisport when she was docked in Hong Kong. My name is Andy Huffman a former Signalman 2nd class in the U.S.Navy. I am rather vague about the exact year, but it was around 1962, 1963 or 1964. I was serving on either the U.S.S. Lexington CVA-16, U.S.S. Ranger CVA-62 or perhaps the U.S.S. Constellation CVA-64.

I met a few British Sailors at the enlisted men's club and at their invitation visited their ship (as you fondly refer to her at "Tillie") the following day. I was shown around Tillie and asked if I cared to have a taste of their rum rations. OMGOSH!!! The next morning I woke up aboard the aircraft carrier in my bunk with a horrible "bloody" hangover.
The crew just kept handing me one after another till, I guess, I must have passed out. I have no idea how I got back to my ship since we were anchored in the bay.

Does anyone remember that wonderful incident? It will live in my memory till I take my final breath!
Hail Britannia! Britannia rules the waves!

As a footnote: I've traced my ancestry back to Sir Robert De Blakeland born in 1164 in Calne, Wiltshire, England.

Added by Arthur A. *Andy on 03 December 2016.
Hi Andy. Sorry I don't remember you, I was deployed in 64 and had a trip around the Constellation. Lunch was nice but Root Beer.......?
I do remember getting a couple of poor Submariners wrecked in the China Fleet club and crooking them out of their badges and Zippo's in a drinking comp, my apologies on my buddies behalf too. Thats all I can remember, things are pretty vague now i'm 70. Lets hope we don't take our last breath too soon.

Hi Andy. I remember visiting the Constellation in H.K so it was probably 64. Also receiving a couple of US Submariners of their badges and Zippo's in a drinking comp at the China Fleet club. Well, I'm 70 now and still going fairly strong, hopefully we don't take our last wheezes too soon. All the best.

Added by Brian Barnes on 08 December 2016.
Andy, I believe the year was 1964. That is, to the best of my recollection, when America went into Vietnam in a big way. Hong Kong harbour and all surrounding sea lanes were chock a black with U.S. naval and amphibious vessels. Loch Killisport was duty harbour guard ship.


Added by John Walkinshaw on 10 December 2016.
Hello Andy

I'm pretty sure I was one of those who invited you on board the Loch Killisport in 1964. If memory serves me right you weren't too impressed with the 'tot' on your first sip - thought it was a bit weak - then bang!

Happy days.

Merry Christmas Andy. It was good to have met you, and I've never forgotten that day.
