Perhaps someone said there was an SSN outside the harbour and they were trying to get back in at the rush!

We had a WAFU as a skipper, he could hit anything when entering and leaving harbour, Jimmy and XO had a standing wagers, a case of booze, if full astern was ordered, normally instigated by XO before ramming station, then Case went to MEO if no full astern given case to XO I believe the MEO was well ahead, when entering Germany as part of task force, we hit something hard, coms shack to bridge what have we hit, casual reply Germany, he was relieved of his post before deploying to Falklands by an old style gunnery officer.

Unfortunately that was Gen, he needed the command posting for promotion but being replaced before post was up may not have looked good on his write ups?


Had 2 skimmer drafts where We & WAFU’s were in the same mess, and I had Portland as well, awfully nice chaps once you could get them out of there racks and drinking.
