Michael Collins, the "forgotten astronaut" from the first Apollo Moon Landing. RIP
It was a good job he was 'forgotten' and not the other two. That would have been a tricky debrief after splashdown.

We were on our honeymoon at the time, in Menorca, ironically staying in the former country home of RN Admiral Collingwood (now Hotel del Almirante) and with a view across the bay to Admiral Nelson's house.
There was quite a bit of hostility from some of the locals towards us Brits!

Thank God for that European 'union', eh?

The Atlantic Conveyor was hit on the same day. Captain Ian North was the hero merchant captain who came out of retirement to captain his old ship that had been requisitioned by the MOD. Refused to leave the ship while people and equipment were still being taken off and went down with the ship. A hero amongst heroes. Must be worth a mention too.

Imagine how great he'd have been if he'd bothered using a defence?!
Loved watching him box, a proper maverick.
Or if he could have kept away from women and booze. Was never fully focused but was an excellent boxer. Colourful character and life needs those

They reckoned the only fight he knuckled down for was when he beat Duran, imagine what he could have achieved with more focus?
That win should have been his golden ticket.
