Leam Mark Farrar

G'Day. The name is Leam Mark Farrar and I am from Sydney, Australia. I'm a qualified primary school teacher but I work as a suburban train guard, so I get to travel to all different places around Sydney every single day and I love it! I have lived in Sydney most of my life, bar a short period in 2015 where I lived in Suffolk, United Kingdom.

I am also very much a "train buff" and a political "hack" as they put it. While I was at university, I was Chief of Staff and senior political advisor to the president at my university. During that same period; I was also chair of the campus council (my university has six campuses), and I also did some freelance writing for the student newspaper, on political events both university-wide as well as state and federally, so that students have an idea of what is actually going on in their world from the political side of things. It kept me busy but I love doing what I do. I am the eldest and I have my little sister, dad and two beautiful nieces. That's just the immediate family, there is countless aunts, uncles and cousins.

As for fleet simming, I have been simming since October 2007 and have been part of Bravo Fleet since January 2010, but I have now made Bravo Fleet my full home after spending some time between two different fleets. This is my home and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon. Here in Bravo Fleet, I have served on the Infobase team, I have also been a Task Group Commanding Officer, Task Force Executive Officer and was Task Force 72 Commanding Officer for just over four years until late 2016 when I stepped down to focus on my own simulations.

I currently command the USS Excalibur (http://uss-excalibur.com) over in Task Force 93 and the USS Cavalry (http://uss-cavalry.com) within Task Force 99 and I look forward to making Bravo Fleet the best fleet in the world!

Characters


Captain Anthony Richardson
Commanding Officer
USS Excalibur

Rugged good looks don’t go anywhere close to describing Anthony. His grey hair is a good look for a man of his age, his desire to not really bother with what it looks like gives it a very ruffled look. A piercing stare will send anyone to the likes of Siberia when he doesn’t appreciate their “stupidity” as Anthony puts it. Being your average height and weight, everything just seems to be because it was like that when it comes to Anthony; there really is not a whole lot that is special about him when it comes to looks. Anthony is always clean-shaven and whatever he wears is always neatly clean and pressed to give others the sense that he looks after himself and takes pride in himself.


Captain Samuel Wentworth
Commanding Officer
USS Cavalry

Samuel is very much a people person, he doesn’t like the rock the boat so much, but he does expect his crew to work hard. He is not afraid to get his own hands dirty, and will in some situations get straight to where the action is to help out and provide support and an extra set of hands if it means success over failure. Samuel is never one to reticule a crewmember for offering an opinion and will always support his crew and team when it comes to ensuring that they have what they need to do their job, and are in good spirits. Samuel does, from time to time, go a little bit over the top with his requests of his crew, he will on occasions ask a bit too much of his crew, stemming from his desire to have a great crew working hard.
