Phoning from abroad on a ship

Just wondering if anyone could advise. DH is in the Gulf onboard on ops. His mobile is blocked. I got a phonecall this p.m from a UK area code, answered and it was DH. He said he was phoning at sea, using the phonecards they give you. Is it usual for it to come from a UK number?? Usually its +(enter country dial code here) or international. Got it in my head, they may have flown home 2 weeks early due to broken ship... There was alot of ummms and ahhs when i asked where he was and then he said he would email me from the ship, but he didn't!

014 is right. Oh well, could do with the operational pay, only 19 days left.

Yes it's routed through Sheffield or Leicester or something.

Agree with LL he probably can't tell you where he is. And if on ops they often block external email as well. I used to go days without email from DH then get 5 all at once!

He usually comes home early and "suprises me", except he is the worlds worst liar, so cant hide anything from me and i usually find out from his boss before him that he will be back early! Atleast i dont have to worry about cleaning the house in a mad rush now.
