After having read most of the posts on this here site, i thought i would part with some wisdom for the Newbies & Civvies. Newbies. Please think before you post a topic. If you go into the newbies forum and go through it, you may well find that your question has been asked by someone else and answered. I wouldn't have a clue what you are going on about as my experience of a ship was getting shitfaced on the HMS Ambuscade down in the Falklands in late '91. Obviously, a quick search will prevent you getting abused by the experienced chaps on this site. There is nothing wrong with asking a question, but please take the time to engage your brain before you do. If you do this, you may find a plethora of help and experience at your disposal. Civvies. Everyone has something to bring to a party, and you are no exception. However, just because you may subscribe to the Navy News, it doesn't make you an expert in everything Naval. Winding it in a bit will also prevent your posts getting crayoned over by the die hard loonies on this site. Diamond Lil's. There is no point in moaning because you don't agree with what some people are saying in this particular forum. Read the warning before you enter. You wouldn't drink bleach then moan that it makes you feel like shit would you? Exactly. If you don't like or understand the humour, go to another forum. RAF. Just fuck off. If i can assist anyone else with any problems that they may have, please feel free to ask.
