https://twitter.com/RowlandWhite/status ... 62240?s=20 ---> A US military photo of an Indian Navy Sea Harrier - that had probably lent its radar to the Royal Navy to take to the Falklands - performing a Farley climb at the 1982 Farnborough Air Show. Loving the the results of this multinational effort!

Vice Admiral John Thomas Gosling Pereira, one of the last surviving officers who had served in the Second World War, passes away.

The 97-year-old highly decorated officer was born February 15, 1923. JTG, as he was known, is best remembered as the Chief Staff Officer (Technical) of the Western naval Command ahead of the 1971 Indo Pak conflict, overseeing the preparations of the OSA Class Missile Boats for the missile attack on Karachi, and the unconventional repairs to the boilers of INS Vikrant before she was deployed in the Bay of Bengal.


JTG lived his life in the Naval Dockyard nurturing it from a small repair yard into a sophisticated strategic asset. A naval veteran said, "A little known fact is that Admiral Pereira maintained a close confidential liaison through the 1970s between the Navy and the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) to form a nucleus around which the nuclear submarine programme could take off in 1985."
