I served with Dave when he was MEO in Hobart and I was the Pusser. Good bloke.

He may have, but I don't know. And that would have been well before his time in Hobart.

Thanks Tim. Something in the back of my mind remembers the Techno's in MHQ saying something about a Steamy on a Diesel ship. Doesn't matter - he was a nice person that's all that matters.
