CPO (Cook) Owen (Buck) Taylor with his fleet of chocolate ships made in 1988 for the wardroom mess at HMS Mercury to celebrate Trafalgar Day.

His wife Linda sent me the photo and says he painstakingly coloured all the flags.

He left the navy after 25 years and went to work for Hampshire Constabulary as an exhibits administrator at Netley.

He retired three years ago and the couple live at Heyshott Road, Southsea.
