An Officer and A Gentleman

Dartmouth, United Kingdom


BRNC Britannia. They tried to make an officer of me, but I was having none of it. Had a blast though drinking lots of beer and messing about on the river - often at the same time.

Broke my personal record for 'most drinks (no too the same colour)'. 32 in case you were wondering.

Dartmouth is so beautiful it makes you cry.
