Another Newbie

Hi All,

Newbie here. Been looking at this site for some time as a
visitor, and a couple of weeks ago I came across the
contributed list of Naval sayings and pipes. Pee'd myself
laughing, and I just had to sign on.

As for me, joined Ganges in '54 and left the mob in '66 as a
killick Sparker. I am now retired. Married & divorced twice,
with two daughters and three Grand children.


I'm currently stringing a Web site together about my time
in the Andrew for the grand children, and I wondered if anyone
would object to me pasting a selection of the Rum Ration list
of Naval maxims and pipes into the appendix - I would hate to
see them watered down and diluted by the Political Correctness
caucus.

Cheers,

Jerry Hatrick

Help yourself mate.

I don`t think theres any copyright on the net if the poster isn`t using his real name, and even then it`s a grey area.

It`s always good manners to include the source at the end…. I do stories and poems and stuff and I have seen it a couple of times where plebs have passed it off as their own…..I always take it as a compliment.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with the website

Hi Jerry,

do pop into Lil's sometime if you are at a loose end a few of the old cogers are a bit smelly and most of the blokes need their knuckles rapping from time to time but overall it's a good laugh.

Bottoms up!

Whats this about keeping sane, you'll be getting us all a bad name.

Sparks, enjoy the fun.
 
Hi All,

Many thanks for your kind messages, best wishes and warm
welcome. Much appreciated.

I have now incorporated the RR Maxims and Pipes into the web
site appendix, with the Credits going to the members and crew
of Rum Ration and, hopefully, I should have it on line by the
end of month.

Finally, if I could have a little time to myself to unpack my
kitbag, stow my gear and organise my medals, I should then be
ready to enter the fray - first port of call Diamond Lill's.

Once again, my sincere thanks to all for your kind and welcoming
missives.

Jerry
