HMS COURAGEOUS 1974-1979
The Submariner's aboard this boat
adopted an African Elephant someone
found tethered to a bollard next to
the taxi rank on Helensburghs
mainstreet. They called him *Mongo*
and he lived in an old Chacon
that they put in theirLay-apart
store just up from 6-Berth. When
they eventually left Faslane, to go
to Chatham for re-fit, Capt SM3
granted permission for Mongo to go
with them. They chained him to the
starboard rails of the fin and
hoofed it down the Gareloch on the
step.Mongo was as happy as larry,
but the casing party spent most of
their time trying notto step in
enormous piles of elephant shit.
Anyhow - Courageous encountered some
very bad weather in the Irish Sea
(surface passage) and come the
morning - Mongo had simply
disappeared. God! The entire Boat's
Company miss that elephant. Ask any
ex Courageous ships company -
they'll vouch for him. He was a
brills elephant and good company for
the Upper Deck Trot.
R.I.P. Mongo. (Here is only one of
two known photographs that exist of
on the casing of HMS COURAGEOUS
as they sailed out of Faslane, with
AFD 60 visible
in the background). The other is of
Mongo in happier daze.
