While Rod Keller was doing his usual rounds looking for Scientology's footprint in social media this week, he ran across a flier that made him do a double take. And we're glad he did, because he sent over this entertaining look at a slice of Scientology history we thought you'd want to see.

Last night the Tampa Ideal Org hosted veteran Sea Org member Wick Allcock for an evening of stories about his experiences with L. Ron Hubbard. As the flier indicates, Allcock has a long history with Scientology and witnessed many of its key moments. And as you'll see, he's perhaps uniquely qualified to talk to Scientologists about where his career in the church has brought him.

Born Warwick Gregory Allcock in New Zealand in 1956, "Wick" and his brothers Richard (known as "Wak") and John served aboard the yacht Apollo, L. Ron Hubbard's flagship that he used to run Scientology from sea during the years 1967 to 1975. The Allcock brothers served in the engine room. All three were well liked by the crew.
