Here we see Chief Petty Officer Les Russell stirring the Christmas pudding on board HMS Maidstone, a submarine depot ship, in December 1954.

Helping him, as is traditional, is the youngest sailor in the ship, on this occasion Jerry Locke.

My colleague Bob Hind and I wish you all a merry Christmas – be careful with that flaming pudding today.
