And I agree Petal's head is enormous :thumright:

As an ex senior rate of the Buccaneer time I would question as to why only senior rates at the function. Many junior rates would have spent several years on Sea Harriers and now years later would possibly like to attend a reunion.
The Fleet Air Arm Buccaneer Association is open to all who served on Buccaneers and the Squadrons. so it includes handlers, cooks and stewards and stores bashers, all who played their part in keeping the aircraft flying (well perhaps the stewards weren't really needed).

i await more enlightened people to correct me - but youve to draw the line somewhere. you normally pisss up with your own peers so this was the next step.

also if we didnt limit we'ed have the lurrrvely orficers joining in and spoiling the fun.

Know what you mean Shag. However what I found was that many of those ex junior rates have done extremely well since leaving the RN and are now your peers, or in some cases maybe even your boss. :dwarf:
As for the hoccifers they seem a lot easier to get on with once they have left the service and found that they do not get the same lifestyle in the real world as they did in the bunhouse.

couldnt agree more - had a wren (not as you are thinking) that was bloody useless, left the mob after a couple of days intensive tin-bashing instruction and walked into a bloody good job at westlands overseeing tinbashing

And to think I taught you everything I know...... and then you taught it to everyone else, it's no wonder we saw the demise of the Shar!

Not even a supervisor now, my new employers have chosen the title "Project Manager" and printed it on all my business cards! :thanks:

Gosh, Here's a thought.....much as I respect our Harrier chappies, is there really a single venue that can accommodate a meeting of the SHAR pilots' ego?

(Apart from the O2 dome jobby)

O2 thingy is only big enough for a single ego, it would have to be an open air affair!

well its the day after the night before - unless anyone else can better it - the endearing image for me will be watching a Chief pinkie (and AIB passed orificer) trying to snort a line of brown sauce through a rolled up £20.

that and "the head eyeballing vodka.
