Serious question from a PSOF, if no ovies anymore how do you make sure people are in “clean” clothing at meal times? Stand fast dirty smelly sun dodgers.

Crib ref as dapper said but also oneupmanship as in '' 15 - 2 that bastard ''

No ovies or bat's in mess, no rules on washing regular, but if you smelt rotten we would politely mention it?

Yaeh was prob;lematic for me as ex RN ' rules are good'
There are extra sets of 'PJs' for Mt / stokers in addition the cafe/ dining hall was run by the ship's PTI so they were able to enforce any hygiene issues!
Also a shock to the system was no 4 o'clockers :(
Does anyone have a wistful memory of their favourite '4 o clocker' snack?
ps never was any good at crib

Boiled egg sarnies were mine - remembering of course to spin the egg first in case of the Chef's little 'jape'

and of course 'Herrings in' on toast - still love that now
