Mine is the 18 July 1967 ejection.  What is not mentioned is that I was on exchange with the Danish Air Force flying out of Karup Denmark.  I ejected at very low altitude into the Kattegat a couple of miles off the east shore of Denmark.  (3 seconds in the chute) The story has some interesting twists re rescue, survival equipment etc., and has been written up in a few books.
