The film was doing the rounds of the dockyard for weeks, I never seen anything so funny for years.
Friggin Jack p*ssed as parrots, pouring out the door in droves of panic, and staggering all over the road.
The poor bugger who tossed the smokey in got trooped as he had borrowed it from Whale Island armoury
Rum you'll have to educate this young one, "Fleece". I have no idea what your talking about. Maybe pissed up Bob could fill in the gaps?
The Golden Fleece was THE p*ssy up sailors pub in Commercial rd by the town railway station, rough scrumpy etc. If a JS dared go in he either got battered or ridiculed, if he didn't flee the joint sooner. 8O :cry:
