Things done to pass the time in the Bunkspace.

(1). When bloke has head down, locate his steaming wazzers and
stick an egg in each one (uncooked - complete with shell). Almost
always worked when they got up to go on watch.
(2). Tie curtains to the ones in the next bunk and delight in the exploits
as one bloke shuts his curtains - and the other blokes curtains mysteriously
open...only to be shut....and then the OTHER curtains open. Repeat until
a fight ensues.
(3). Wake your relief - not with a Pussers right-angle red torch, but
with a 5" Aldis complete with battery. Fried eyeballs at 01:00 are a
marvellous way to start the day.
(4). Hide 1 x "Stornophone" (Squelch button full on) somewhere in
opposite watches bunk. Then you can select a channel and give him
repeated calls throughout the period of his time off watch. This trick
normally culminated in physical violence.
(5). When he gets his nut down - locate his clothing (if he took any off)
and remove it to the freezers (L/Chef always happy to oblige). Spray
with water and lay it out on the deck. Let it set solid and return clothing
about ten minutes before he gets his shake. Listen to the rantings as he
tries to get a sub-zero No. 8 shirt on.
(6). Wrap pillow in masking tape (Sticky side outwards). Works on most
ratings, but back-afties tend not to notice when their head touches the
pillow as they simply slide off.

Oh the fun we had.

We had an RS who not only had magnificent coffin dreams, but also had salad cream (I think) on absolutely everything he ate.

Funny how it ran out mid patrol................. :D

My personal favourite was to empty the contents of a drum of Parmesan Cheese on to a large plate of scramblers first thing in the morning. Used to chuck up something rotten, but the taste appealed to me, unlike the rest of the off-going watch, who were a bit put off by the aroma. A "Fat Bastards Breakfast" par exellence, ate at 100 m.p.h. in order to maximise rack time.

Billy NM you have a serious problem.
You must have been loads of laughs to live on a submarine with.
All I can say that you didn't have very much to do whilst you was at sea.
Christ all I wanted to do when I was six off was get my head down!!
Six hours on the after planes tapper gear was enough fer me!

Had to do some mad things or we would have gone bat-shit. Agree that it was extremely knackering - but a bit of fun, a laugh and the odd insane act of hilarity was excellent for the morale of the crew.

Yea gods £33 for a book about submariners antics.
Our fun was conducted on watch in a darkened O boats control room.
Like switch WEO's torch on whilst he was on the roundabout eyes glued to the after peep stick optics. WEO is now duty lighthouse.
Panel watchkeeper wiping bodily fluids on people transiting the control room.
Snurgle 'next on scran' as it transisted the control room.
Trip up the Steward on his way forwarder with a tray of duff.
Change the lids to the coloured marker pens on the CEP.
This way you get your amusement whilst on watch leaving sleeping time to sleep.

Competition between watches to see which watch could lift the
most Yellow pussers right-angle torches. (Bunhouse issue only
apparently) - all us other morons could only operate the green
ones.

Record stood at about 30, all mysteriously filched from various
occifers who manked a bit before lowering their standards to
owning a green torch.

Eventually - all the yellow ones were put in a gash bag (all switched
on), and dumped on the Casing Officers rack.

Folk started to "Brand" their yellow torches with soldering irons.
*W.E.O.* *D.W.E.O.* etc thereby ensuring that they were never
thieved again.






Like that worked.
