We spent probably 5-10 minutes just chatting through the different combinations

Your sleeping and the 2/0 called you up sighting a red flare – I was primed and ready to hit him with a
submarine in distress – one of the MFP’s. but he asked what all distresses I would send – mayday relay.

We spoke for a while after just about Glasgow.
