Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

    Good for him. He's done a good job so why not reward him?

  4. At least the Navi knows that Mecca is not just a dance hall!
     
  5. Like to see him in rig wearing it?

  6. I dont think he is actually a member of the armed forces hence no rig.
     
  7. Is he not a servings sky pilot like the rest of them then?

    Is he getting paid by the mob?

    Is he joint service?

    Or is he a civil servant?

    Just seems a bit weird that different rules seem to be applied here?

  8. I think that certain relgions (Muslim, Sikh etc) are honorary part time workers and not in the mob per se, unlike the christian Bish's.

  9. I think they are almost advisors to the MOD. Where would you draft a muslim, jewish, buddhist, sikh bish too. They are hardly mainstream religions in the armed forces.
     
  10. Para 3117 emergency burial.

    Never knew that!
