Adding to Sultan’s LH’s Mess


Evening all,

Had an account on here for ages but not posted before, so not sure if this contravenes any rules?

HMS Sultan’s Leading Hand’s and Corporal’s Mess are looking to make the mess a bit more submarine orientated as its currently full of WAFU gash, and we have nothing.

Was just wondering if anyone on here knows anyone/anywhere that can supply quotes for a large set of dolphins, 6 yard Jolly Roger and things of the like.

Maybe some class Submarine gizzits?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Tried the submarine museum? You'll have to sign for most things but they've got more stuff than they can display.
Visiting Southsea? The Sirloin of Beef, Highland Rd Southsea is run by 'Jez'( of the Portsmouth Submariners), specialises in Craft Beers and is crammed with SM Memorabilia from Jez's time in Diesels & Nuc Boats. He might even have some SM trophies to spare. (Skimmers welcome too, as long as they buy their round & keep their place)

For a group Run Ashore locally - Make contact with the local Gosport branch of the Submariners Association who meet monthly 1st Thursday at RNA club Fleetlands.

Details of All Branches here:

ANY Branch would welcome visiting Submariners, just a courtesy call beforehand to the Branch Sec to confirm time/place.

Ah cheers Bob,

I’ll have a pop down there tomorrow and have a dit on with the guy.

Going to pop down to the Submarine Association this month, I’m a member of Barrow Association so I’m going to have to transfer over to Gosport!

Yeah I’ve had the experience of being out ditted every month there!

Thanks bob,
