Terry will also and always be remembered for his great skills and bravery as a Helcopter pilot - one special mission where he and a co-pilot and 2 winchmen, rescued three injured seamen from a crippled oil rig supply vessel off Shetland after being injured when an explosion ripped through the engine room of Polar 901 as she approached the oil rig pentagon 82 in storm lashed seas 90 miles South-East of Sumburgh.
A coastguard spokesman at Lerwick said the Polar 901 was drifting without power in gale force winds and heavy seas though the fire was under control. The injured men were put aboard the rig while the helicopter from Bristow Helicopters, at Sumburgh, refuelled before flying to Aberdeen.
Terry is again saluted for his skill and endurance in getting No Komis to her destination.
