Did my dozen (1952-1964) best thing I ever did and will never regret one thing about it except not staying in. Not sure how I would cope with the changes but maybe " boats " is still boats. If yer in great, if yer thinking about it don't hesitate get in
Left 88 at the time it was great then it became apparent just how much the mob looked after/did for you what a shock! What a big bad world. Used to it now.
All the same would do it all again, some things slightly different though
did 14 yrs 75 to 89 loved it would i join now ? dont think so "the good times" will never be what they were too many rules and regs now the square gash bag was king in my day hope the new recruits enjoy it u can only try :lol:
Ex RN. Did 12 years and came out on notice in '90.
Enjoyed my first 9, then when I re-engaged, they stuck me in a crane at Coulport for 2 years, then gave me a Guzz based ship, so I said "Phuque ye!"
I'd still do it again, though.
