2 Deck Dash and more brave the 5 Deck Dash was common on ARK most were female and used it as an excuse to go wibble whilst naked and avoid deployment. Five went ashore to ditch gash in 2002 dressed in No4s with civvies in gash bags 10 minutes before sailing waived to us from the Round Tower in said civvies as we deployed only one went to Colchester (the best of the bunch) the others went female wibble and got away with being AWOL.
Thank fcuk I never have to serve in a mixed ships company again.
Stan: I know that dit - the ones who were on the Round Tower gobbing off and bragging about how they "should've been on board, suckers!" were overheard by the wife of a responsible Killick Stoker who notified Provost, who subsequently did a 'productive' trawl of absentees in the area shortly afterwards... :wink:
I knew a few people on my first ship who did the '2 deck dash' after a few tins in the mess :lol: There was a reason to why the 40mm onboard was called 'The Zoo' 8O
I heard about that 2002 'issue', however, I've known more people to throw themselves down a ladder the day before an OST started.............one guy even jumped in the ogin to 'off' himself, not that it worked, the git didn't stop swimming :roll:
