Invergordon Mutineer - Len Wincott

I enjoyed transcribing this, it was oddly very reminiscient of my own childhood, one thing that surprised me, like many sailors Len uses naval terms and slang but strangely very rarely bothered to explain what he means, which could leave some parts of the narrative unclear or incomprehensible, so I've added footnotes explaining the ones that were still familiar to me.

Oh, and a couple time Len shows that he was in fact a cranky old man in the 70s with some reactionary views. The most bizarre being a mini rant about rights for prisoners campaigners, just after he's finished explaining the horrors of the naval prison.
