apology...

#1
lauralovestodig- i work as a landscape gardener for sheffields wildlife trust during my free time from study. i am but an architecture student.

as far as getting anyone into trouble or making a serious complaint. NOT MY INTENTION. if i were to complain you can believe it would be through the appropriate channels.

i decided to put the racism post up, perhaps foolishly, out of interest not malice!!
But yes maybe i should have stuck to 'bell bottoms, thier place in a modern force-discuss??'

if i upset anybody i apologise

not sure when,70's i think. us bigger buggers had 7 creases, 1 for each of the 7 seas we ruled. the 3 stripes on collar were for nile,copenhagen and trafalgar.

I was told it was the 7 seas but if you was a shortarse you had 5 creases for the Oceans.As far as i have found out the stripes were purely ornamental and nothing to do with the 3 battles of nelson.

my dad told me the only reason they wore bell bottoms was because it is easier to take them off over the top of your shoes... i have the feeling he might have been lying now i am a grown up.

revenge- yes i am going to make him saulte me when i am an officer

If I'm not mistaken, this is Current Affairs. Laura's apology is appropriate and welcome. Thereafter the thread degenerates. Take it to the Quarterdeck or 'Lil's please.

dearest laura - an apology does no harm but I for one do not feel you need to apologise - the day we can't debate things is the day we ought to shut up shop and go home. Let's face it the reason these fora exist is to give people a voice they are not able to express in the workplace or elsewhere. So thanks - but well done. A hotly contested topic is a successful one in my book - well done - hope you go far

Think how fake-looking the uniform has become. Jacket zips up and the bow is now a pre-sewn thing (it's no longer a tape you tie yourself - the bow comes ready made now). It is attached to the silk which clips inside your jumper. :? Add to that the '70s flares and you get a not very matelotish looking thing...

Bell bpttoms: Uniform trials of the "new" type of square rig unform werre started in mid-1972. About 6 types were offered including one similar to the Dutch pattern. I think in 1973 a vote was taken and the present pattern of uniform was adopted as being nearest to the seven seas bell bottoms.with little change to the milk churn lid.
